There are some problems that must be solved before.
One of the problems is: a conflict between multiple Java implementations of
a helper. Only one of the implementations must be added to bootstrap
classpath. Today all of the implementations (both gc_gen and gc_cc jars) are
in bootstrap. So we need an interface to allow adding custom item into
bootstrap classpath. After we have it GC can use this API to add its own
helpers and helpers from different GC can share the same name.
