That is why I am astonished that converting Java-Bytecode to Dalvik code 
should be an easy task.

I do know a stack based 32-Bit Hardware engine using such a byte code 
("ZPU") Same is done to use as little FPGA resources as possible. It do 
know that a GNU C compiler for this engine exists. Using it's Assembler 
is highly depreciated, as watching the stack locations is close to 
impossible for humans.
