We haven't done this in the past because the benefits of an
automatically growing stack (provided by the host OS) are quite
useful.  On the other hand, there are a couple hoops that the
threading systems must jump through during initialization (the first
thread is somewhat different from all the others...)

Another alternative is to run some Java code that starts a new thread
and synchronizses with the OJI glue code that started the VM:


Then, in the Java code, you'd have to signal back to the the thread
that started the VM that you're ready.  (Perhaps there is some
implicit synchronization already happening that you can take advantage
