Actually you already know the answer. Will you rename the "java-gnome"
project to "gcj-gnome"? If not, stay with JNI, if yes, do this step
with all consequences - you are talking about a library, then, which
will not be available to generic Java programs/developers. One will
then have to decide

  1) do I write a platform-independent Java program obeying Java
     standards and do not use gcj-gnome


  2) do I write a GCC-program in Java language and make use of

(note the difference in writing a Java program and writing a program
in Java language)
