I am no programmer but this is very interesting!
Do 10M lines in C++ convert to 10M lines in Java? Is it a 1:1 conversion?
Are there successful examples similar in magnitude to AOO in the software
world of such code rewrites from language A to language B? How did they make
Is it possible to reduce the 10M lines for conversion by for example
omitting Draw and Base from the suite?
Can this conversion be performed in a modular way? 
Many thanks for answering.
