I remember that when I wanted to import ClassLoader I had to import 
Class too and then Double, ... and all other remaining classes of GNU 
Classpath. The problem is that the Class implementation of GNU Classpath 
is totally incompatible with kaffe's current implementation which 
assumes some things (especially the fields) to make the VM work properly 
(if not at all). The only option is to transform all references to 
Hjava_lang_Class in kaffe into a private internal VM structure and use 
some object/class resolver to translate this representation into a Java 
representation whenever we need it externally. BTW, this solution will 
be necessary when we'll want to fix the remaining problems with the 
boehm-gc merge.

I've begun this modification in a separate tree on my disk but this 
involves a lot of changes. So I'd prefer we stick with the current 
implementation at the moment (and import setSigners from GNU Classpath 
if possible) and let this change for kaffe 1.1.6 or 1.1.7.
