So why wasn't this cleared up from the start? Why state steadfastly
that it was open and plausible. Ambiguity wastes time, obviously,
maybe the Apache "moderators" (for lack of a better word) should go
and list what is probably plausible and probably not plausible for the
suggested implementation of the jvm, libraries etc.

Between those two I'm on the side of jc becuase it should run faster
than jikes rvm, I don't know why it wouldn't. Though I don't know why
Kaffe isn't on the list.

And this part is completely unnecessary, and bothersome. If you have
somethign to say, say it and don't bother with the flaming.
