[fpc-devel] Pascal to Java compiler

I remember that the Delphi to java bytecode compiler isn't feature 
complete. I can't be: it will not be possible to compile any old delphi 
program into java byte code for several reasons. But it is possible to 
create Java bytecode with a - safe - subset of pascal syntax. It is also 
possible to use the same intermediate compiler to compile to .net/mono, 
though. It isn't possible to adapt Freepascal to write once compile 
anywhere with Java OR .Net. Both these assume restrictions that are 
simply not there in native code compilers, so you would have to work 
with one lame leg. I hope you realize that.
