[kaffe] bootclassloader vs. SystemClassLoader problems

The current kaffe implements JDK 1.1 class loader semantics,
because some legacy applications relied on that.

I think it should be okay now to implement 1.2 semantics
with application-specific classloaders and separate bootclasspath
and application classpaths, but you will need a good plan for that 
and you need to understand what you're doing.
Also, you should keep possible future support for JSR-121 [1] in mind.
