I would advise against touching the Blackdown code.  Sun has
not released its source code under a "Free" license, and any
activities related to this code are both non-free, and potentially
corrupting of your ability to produce any "clean-room" code.

Help make Kaffe better, rather than waste time with Sun's
code.
