I think that there is a lot of room in the reimplementation of the tools 
that come with Suns JVM. A lot of them can be implemented independently 
of any specific JVM. Off the top of my head some of the projects could 
be (dependening on the skill level and interest of the participants).

* jconsole
* rmic
* javadoc
* apt
* appletviewer
* jar
* javah
* javap
* keytool
* jarsigner

Some of those tools probably will tie into JVM specific features but I 
am sure that they could be built on top of Suns JVM and then re-targeted 
for Harmony when it is sufficiently advanced.
