I'm impressed by the atomic object reference rerouting
feature. I think it would be interesting to see some
colaboration between your work and Jon's. BDBJ [1] is
a Java debugger based on kaffe that allows to step
*backwards* through code. 

So picture a combination of both: an ueber-debugger
that allows you to find the bug, step back until you
find the offending statement, and to replace the buggy
instance with a corrected version. That could bring a
HotSwap [2] capability to BDBJ, and later, kaffe, if
we implement JVMDI and friends based on BDBJ.

I've tried to download it, but the web server says:
You don't have permission to access
/research/gilgul/downloads/gvm-1.0.7-0.2.tar.gz on
this server.

the gilgul web page states that your compiler, ggc,
doesn't work on kaffe. Could you elaborate on what's

Thanks for using kaffe for your research.

If you've fixed any bugs in kaffe's core or libraries
while you were working on Gilgul, it would be nice if
you could post the patches with some Changelogs.
