And there is a new release out that should make it easier for people to

That would be very much appreciated!

If you could provide a list of files/classes that kaffe has imported
from GNU Classpath and that you are sure about that they haven't seen
strange changes in kaffe CVS recently that would already help.
In general it would be nice to have a comparison page for kaffe like
libgcj has. See http://gcc.gnu.org/java/libgcj-classpath-compare.html
For the classes that libgcj has imported we are already reasonably sure
that they have not been tempered with since Tom Tromey and Michael Koch
run daily diffs between those.
