The GSoC project has not really started yet, we haven't started  
accepting applicants.  I think it would be a great thing to focus  
future java efforts on your front-end, provided it's in better shape  
than llvm-java (which isn't hard).  It would be awesome if you were  
willing to mentor a student.  Please sign up on the GSoC page as a  
mentor, thanks!
