There's a guy on the talk-de mailing list who says he won't use software 
that requires evil non-free Sun Java so rather than just telling him to 
go away (which was my first instinct) I'd like to do a version that 
works with gcj.

Can you provide me with the patches required to get going with gcj?

And maybe a dumb question but I haven't used anything but Sun Java - are 
the two incompatible in a way that requires gcj-compiled .jars for 
execution with gcj and Sun Java-compiled .jars for execution with Sun 
Java, or will we be able to create .jars that run on both?
