I have tried both the JIT3 and INTRP with some test programs on my PXA255. 
JIT3 was considerable slower, but I had only simple test programs that 
where executed once.

Most test programs worked, some not.

However, I don't have the following:

a) expertise in Java (somehow I don't like the language, /me likes python 
more then it comes to interpreted languages)

b) expertise in the inner stuff of Kaffe, classpath etc to be able to 
debug the non-working test code

Also, all programs where on the text I/O or console level. I didn't try so 
far any graphical stuff that works with the framebuffer device of Linux 
and I'm still not sure which way I should go here.
