Yes. Actually there is alot ot work on. I like to see multimedia truly
supported in Kaffe.

Yeap. Anything graphics/video I work on. I still have some to go on that
code but it is almost done.

Good. the Classpath stuff is GTK based so I will need help intergrating it
into the Kaffe build system.

Okay. I'm on IRC now.

Nice. It is true there is alot of stuff going on out there. Also looking
at there code I did realize it is not to portable. It is GTK centric. I
like to see alot of this stuff merged in. Agile would be really nice to
support especially since there is a version of embedded OpenGL coming out.
Also OpenML is picking up steam.

I have been looking into it.
