Sounds like one for Brendan or Tim, Syan.
You can license any of your code under the GPL, regardless of the language
The objection against Java is similar to VB: it is still a proprietary

implementations of it available (free as in freedom, not cost), they are not
considered as equal to SUN's implementation yet, and SUN will keep preventing
them from becoming equals.
