I was planting everything in Kaffe: I begun updating the subthreading to 
include the new required syscalls (easy) and FileChannel implementation 
(working but I need to test it against Java NIO's specification), Pipe 
is on the way. I have modified some parts of Classpath's implementation 
to match the necessities of Unix's limitations (for mmap() 
particularly). But maybe I will wait until Michael releases his own code 
to see how different it is.
