Maybe we could actually provide the native file reading

Archie, I believe you said you had such code for JCVM and that you would
consider donating that to GNU Classpath for use with other runtimes. If
you have and want to could you send that code to the (patches) list?
Do other runtime implementers think they would adopt such shared
bootstrap class loading code, or is that something that is too wired
into the actual runtime to be easy to share in a generic way?

The ZIP file reader in JC is welcome to anyone to use. It's fairly
well self-contained in one file (zip.c) plus structure and macro
definitions in structures.h and definitions.h. I believe SableVM
is already using it. I'll happy re-license and/or donate to Classpath.

However, it doesn't seem appropriate for it to go into Classpath,
or at least I'm not sure I understand how it would work exactly,
since there is the obvious bootstrap problem with Java binding.

The relevant files for perusal...
