I believe that this is the ultimate plan. It's harder to do with Kaffe
as historically Kaffe has provided its own class library (which
influenced the VM work). As the two become more decoupled you'll see us
get closer to that goal :)

I'm personally glad that both VMs have a usable bootclasspath
functionality as this is crucial for my work on Odonata[1].
