That's correct. All that's required from any class library to work
with jchevm right now is that it use the Java/VM API that jchevm
supports (defined by Classpath). Of course any class library has
to come with some native libraries of its own, but that's really
it's own business and not a concern of the VM (other than the VM
being the channel through which the two communicate).
