also source to bytecode, or bytecode to native code.

This may be out-of-date.  If the gcj in cvs fails on valid Java code
(except due to lack of libraries), then it is now a bug, rather than
unimplemented.  At least that is my impression, after Alex Petit-Bianco
has checked in support for Inner classes.

I believe Tom is now actually working on JNI.

This is now called "Forte", and Sun recently announced they would
open-source it.  See http://www.sun.com/forte/tools4dotcom/opensource.html
