You can put everything into one zip'ed "file". And put it into
a certain memory segment on your machine. Then, each class in
the zip'ed memory segment can be accessed. I've not used this
technique for kaffe, but I used this idea before.

Fortunately in my case, the system looks like 'embedded
(printer)' but its operating system is NetBSD and it has its
own file system :-)
