If you /ask/ if it's worth doing it, then maybe it is not worth doing it 
for you?

I personally can't think of a use for such a system, but I know that it 
would be quite an effort to get it running, though the JVM itself was 
designed to be not that complex.

What would be the advantage over a bridge through the JNI?
