I saw the X dependency from the kaffe code & sounds complicated to have
such layer on windows !!!
but the other port , requiring QT is not much more easy to use because
this layer has a cost & I'm not sure I can afford a such cost.
In fact, my problem is a bandwith one, we must offer a solution
requiring the smallest download as possible....

I must have much more eleemnts before contacting rainer....
In fact what about the size of the lightest bundle : VM + QT ?( on windows)
we should deliver a solution with asize < 2Mb ?
that's precisely the size of the old JRE from Sun & IBM (1.1.8)
