Yes, but it would require us to provide Java alternatives for all the C 
stuff that we depend on:

  - libxml2
  - image libraries
  - zlib compression
  - font access (this is a big one)
  - flex-based scanner

This could certainly be done, but it requires more than just a rebuild 
in a different grade.
