I had some progress a year ago by using a pure java java.util.zip
implementation from GNU Classpath, but given that it's probably a memory
corruption bug in Cygwin, I didn't want to rely too much on it, and then
other issues demanded my attention.

Milos Negovanovic made a 'Powered by Kaffe' logo  :).
In terms of popularizing the usage of free java runtimes, I think a 'GNU
Classpath compatible' logo would have a much larger impact, though .
I was talking to Jim Pick in Brussels about labelling Kaffe a 'CPVM', a
Classpath virtual machine :)
So when Jim switches the kaffe web server over to Tomcat on Kaffe, we
could have both  and [the Tomcat on our webpage :)
 And we're graudually switching over to GNU Classpath.
