Well, in part because it wasn't there before (while python, perl, etc.
were).  However, right now, Java requires a second C compiler (gcc4),
which is a significant penalty.  Once the standard gcc can handle Java,
then maybe some base can be included.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
