Its always easier to wrap a flexible interface an present it as a less 
flexible one, so I suggest going with the 'this' pointer approach.  If 
it turns out that all the JVMDI code in the world is written to the
singleton, no-this-pointer approach it should be pretty easy to wrap.
Going the other way is much harder, I think.
