	I've observed that the slowness of Kaffe's garbage collector
sometimes absorbs all of the performance gains the JIT compiler has
to offer. So if your programs are creating and discarding a lot of
objects, you might experience slower performance with Kaffe JIT
compared to the JDK interpreter. This will no doubt change when
incremental garbage collecting is finished.
