D'oh! Yes, that was what I meant. Too many big companies starting with I
that do a lot of java stuff...

Hmm. That does seem a little wasteful... I wonder if there's any build
system magic that we could do?

Is the "one line" something that wouldn't hurt other VMs? If so, we
could add it to vm/reference and make ORP work the same way Japhar does
(--with-orp could just be a synonym for --with-japhar which would both
really just mean "with vm/reference")

Thoughts, anyone?
