If this JVM was written in java, it would need another JVM to run,
wouldn't it? One JVM to depend on another JVM to run is a bit weird,
isn't it? Infinite recursivity? Even if it was compiled natively with
GCJ, it would still depend on it. Has GCJ implemented the complete
spec yet?

Just use APR for the portability layer. It's a proven library, and it
is already used in various successful projects, like httpd and
subversion. Maybe even rewrite parts of Kaffe, just to add this
portability layer and to complete the spec implementation, and use it
as the JVM for Harmony (adding enhancements to it, instead of creating
a new one from scratch).
