Even if its as small as no progress as yet.
As to Java dependence: I have determined what needs Java and how it is
called. I have made a short list of compilers and JVMs and I have a database
that contains stats for all the candidates.
One candidate, cacao, has already been ported to OS4 by one of the OS4 devs.
I have spoken to him about it and I am hoping that we could use his port
with little extra work. Not resolved yet.
I still have not ascertained how well it meets the requirements (how closely
it resembles the JDK). Unless it behaves the same way at execution time,
it's not going to help us. The same goes for the other candidates.
