But there is a lot that does work, without the nb-javac or graal, like
cpp, php and python to name only a few.

@Geertjan, can you talk with Dusan and Honza Lahoda if it is even
possible/reasonable to use openjdk as the base of our nb-javac fork?
There is years of development put into nb-javac, so I personally think
it is near impossible, but they can tell us.
