30 % is not that bad. Cygwin is in worse shape, as far as I remember. The RISC
OS port has just passed HelloWorld, and I've checked their sources in. So if
you could clean it up, I wouldn't mind to merge it in.

jit3 is going to be where the action is in the future, I believe. Tim has been
working on improving jit3 in JanosVM, and those improvements will get merged in
one day.

He also merged in a set of regression tests for the jitter, that should be
helpful. Take alook at the test/internal directory.
