Given that it processes exactly the same bytecodes that all
the other Java VMs do, there should be no difference at all
in whether it will

   allow us to generate Java bytecodes
   from a Smalltalk environment.

It might run them more quickly, or have a smaller
memory footprint, but other than that there should be
no observable differences in its behavior.
