And when running NetBeans 4 and selecting Kaffe in the Tools/Java
Platform Manager menu, setting the source code directory to
libraries/javalib and all that, one gets to have Kaffe working out of
the box (as far as I've played with it) within NetBeans4, with
compilation happening through kaffe's jikes wrapper, and the usual cutie
IDE features, etc.  Neat.

It will need someone dedicated enough to make it actually run on Kaffe
to liberate it from 'the Java trap', this was just the first step.
