Perhaps if there was a clear way to disable non-ECMA bits, and check an application/assembly that it didn't use them? GNOME projects could be required to do this. For third-party applications, it doesn't really matter, since they're perfectly able to go and grab *any* encumbered dependency, be it in C, C++, Python, Java, C#, or Bash.

GCJ does not fully use ClassPath yet and AFAIK none of them can run
Eclipse in its entirety.

Red Hat ships Eclipse compiled with gcj and it works fine.
