No, I won't bite yet, I'm still trying to understand the source.
Maybe someone can help me:

- how do you know which native functions are needed by Java's classes?
  do you just wait for LinkErrors or is there something like an API?
- many files in packages/tjwassoc... are machine generated --- from
  what input?
- can the JITC in principle take a bytecode call to a member func
  and instead direct it to a native implementaton of the class?
  Example: java.util.Vector: could this be speeded up by *directly*
  calling my own C implementation (possibly without bounds checking, e.g.)?
- is there a point in rewriting some classes to get better performance /
  free versions of them, or is this outside the kaffe project?
