JET can work standalone (-Xem:jet specified), OPT can work standalone
(-Xem:opt), so from "outside" POV they are independent. Also, correct me if
I'm wrong, OPT does not reuse the results of JET compilation when
recompiling methods - it has its own completely independent pipeline.

We have lots of GCs now but we only have one JIT although modularity concept
of DRLVM allows to create different JITs.

Sure they are. That's why I've asked. They both have opposite POVs though.
