Sus has *not* yet open sourced Java, they announced to release the
first open source code in March 2007, IIRC.  So only at that moment,
looking at the real code, people can see how difficult it is to port
it and start estimating how long that will take.

Seeing how killing (in the negative sense) Java is on old computers
with little memory, I doubt whether it's feasible to use it on the
770, but we'll see...
