The goal is for Classpath to be the "standard" set of Java class
libraries for the majority of free JVMs.  Or at least, with a
reasonable amount of effort, a VM should be able to support Classpath.
Therefore, we need to support JNI in some form.

Yes.

Yes.

This sounds like a good solution, and it's certainly better than the
pure-C++ solution that I was working on.

Do you, or anyone else in the gcc/gcj camp, have time to work on such
a feature?
