This is my idea to update drlvm bootclasspath.properties file parser. First to 
unconditionally include kernel.jar and then all of the files mentioned in 
bootclasspath.properties excluding OSGI stuff. I am going to create a JIRA 
tomorrow. Then it will be possible to get rid of 
drlvm/trunk/vm/vmcore/src/init/bootclasspath.properties
 file and use the properties file provided by classlib.
