So, you want to create your own modified (proprietary, incompatible)
Java (J++?) to write the 'real' Java implementation? :\

I think it would be more feasible to pick the most near-complete
ASL-compatible pieces already coded out there (kaffe, classpath), help
them to achieve completeness, and integrate all of them in a complete
package, just like Geronimo did. Of course they should satisfy some
requirements, and it may require changes, but it's just like JOTM did
to satisfy Geronimo's requirements
