Not to my knowledge.

I wasn't sure about that. Object and Class seemed sufficiently
`special' that I wasn't sure if there would be problems doing it that

As someone else has pointed out to me, we'll need to restrict access
to kaffe.system.* to classes in java.* so that applets can't use
them. The alternative is to make them non-public members of the
appropriate packages, which has the disadvantage that we have to
duplicate code for java.net.* and java.io.*.
