I don't think kaffe's RMI code has seen any major updates since october 1999,
except from the ocassional pedantic compiler warning fix from me. AFAIK, GNU
Classpath's RMI (which I belive came from Transvirtual, originally)
implementation has seen some effort by the ORP hackers. 

So my course of action for kaffe will be to look in your (i.e. Classpath's)
direction, and see what can be merged in eventually.

BTW, is anyone here aware of an RMI test suite?
