[kaffe] Final Parameters in Anonymous Local Inner Classes

Hey all,

Quick, non-Kaffe specific question to you VM hackers :)

Why does Java require that parameters for anonymous inner classes be
final if they refer to local variables in the enclosing function?  I
can't think of any particularly good reason having to do with garbage
collection or anything...
