Considering the latest news, I thought I'd re-post this earlier mail.
Ofcourse, I think situations have changed so I think it is now somewhat
obsolete at least for next release, but still might be of some use as
reference for future work.

TODO before next release (not exclusive) 
- Rewrite stack inspection for Alpha without OSF/1 libexc. This task 
  will enable JIT Alpha for GNU/Linux (and NetBSD). 
- Solve random SEGV on NetBSD/PowerPC. 
- Write JIT for PowerPC (NetBSD and GNU/Linux). 
- Include new release of KJC kjc-1.5A. 

Other TODO before or after next release: 
- Port to Darwin (Mac OS X). 
- Merge libraries with tvt-kaffe. 
- Study backlog of patches. 
- Solve random (and hard to reproduce) SEGV on FreeBSD/Intel.
