Relatively easier than doing a non-C# like language ;-) ... I hope to
re-use most of the C# codegen and at least part of the semanalysis phase
for this.

But there are some difficult questions to be answered about Java ... for
example how do I return ValueTypes to Java ? ... (I've decided to ignore 
structs and enums for Java for now) ...

Theoretically all this would ensure the ability to inherit a C# class
from Java and vice versa (Unlike the retargetting jikes project).

I think the compiler will be usable by April/May this year ... and 
that's probably when it will hit the public CVS .
