Well, strictly speaking java bindings for rpython are not part of Paul's 
SoC proposal but indeed they are probably the most effective way to 
implement other features that he promised.

Btw, I'm not sure it's a good idea to develop them as the first task in 
PyPy, because it's not straightforward if you have no experience with 
the rtyper.

My suggestion is to start by porting tests to genjvm and fixing the 
discovered bugs, because it should be a more newcomer-friendly task; 
then java-bindings for rpython and I/O layer; finally finally 
translation of pypy-jvm.

Paul, what do you think of this plan?
