Sounds like something interesting.

Rob, how hard/easy would be to run existing Swing/AWT applciations on 
Charva, if we played a few tricks with bootclasspath to preload Charva's 
class libraries before our normal AWT implementation, and renamed the 
Charva classes to java.awt/javax.swing packages? Would you be interested 
in seeing Charva used as an AWT implementation option in kaffe?
