I suppose you meant about light weight JNI calls :)
Like I said in '[arch] VM/Classlibrary Interface (take 2)'
thread; most of the time there is no need to
go trough the entire JNI call stack.
Most of the classpath calls should be made simple
returning processor atomic types, so the cost for
calling the native should not exceed the call for
and JVM inline.
