Would it help the licensing situation if the verifier were self-contained
and connected to the kaffe internals through a single glue file providing
the interface between the verifier and the rest of kaffe?  That would also
make it a little easier to plug in the libgcj verifier, JustICE, or
whatever else in the future.
