[kaffe] Merging BeKaffe back into kaffe.org tree

one of the outstanding big merges was pulling the BeKaffe source back 
into the kaffe.org main tree. I've browsed the kaffe.org mailing list 
archives, and according to 

Tomaso> It won't require great changes to the current CVS source base,
Tomaso> we have been a nice project living in separate BeOS directories :-)
Tomaso> The only shared changes that come to mind is the addition of two
Tomaso> unharmful lines into the configure.in and ltconfig scripts.

Judging by http://www.kaffe.org/pipermail/kaffe/2001-June/026345.html 
the developers have met cleanroom conditions and stayed away from Sun's 
sources, which makes a merge possible.

Off list, I had a conversation going with Bernd T. Korz, from YellowTab. 
They would be interested in seing a current version of kaffe on their 
platform. Given that a patch exists [1] to allow open office builds to 
use kaffe, and they want to port openoffice to their platform,  kaffe 
could help bring OpenOffice to Zeta faster.

So my question is quite simple: are there any BeKaffe developers left 
who would be interested in the merge, or could assist in some way?
