It's an extra field (of type java.lang.Object) we use to quickly map a
java.lang.Thread instance to our internal data structures.

That would work for us and would make Classpath work straight out of the box
with one extra VM.  It would be great for ORP users who could download a new
version of Classpath without any extra work.  I would also imagine that it
would be good for Classpath users because they would have one other VM to
work with.

I guess the question is if it's acceptable for the Japhar folks to have one
extra field for every java.lang.Thread instance.  I would think that it
would be acceptable, but then I don't use Japhar.
