What I want from Harmony is that it allows me to change the internals of 
the JVM. For example the layout of a class, or an "enhanced" JIT. And I 
was hoping that Harmony allows me to do that somehow. Of course that 
means to hack into the Harmony code.

Harmony is interesting for me, because as far as I am concerned it is a 
Java compatible JVM and it is not GPL. I was thinking of Maxine, but GPL 
is really not my favorite. I am not sure what will come out of this in 
the end, and to limit myself to the GPL is not exactly motivating for me.

Of course I would need to ask questions, since I basically know nothing 
of the Harmony internals yet and I am also wondering if there will be 
people able to answer me those.

bye Jochen
