I think, this is what you may expect.
The problem, IMHO, is that big companies spend millions and
millions dollars on JIT compiler... They are very advanced.

The usage of kaffe, I think, are platforms that are not supported
by those big companies... And, if kaffe team will decide to put
hands on - moving far in extending java. For example,
adding support for tail-recursion calls may greatly help in
lisp/prolog to bytecode compilers, or support for
work-by-contract offered by kiev compiler may help in
creating high-quality environment for programmers and so on.
