Mostly a matter of Kaffe implementing such an ancient and limited version of 
Java that modern Java programmers can't deal with it easily, and the owner of 
the copyright on the Kaffe code has apparently abandoned it. 

If the FreeNet Project wants to support a "free" Java product, GCJ is the 
proper product to support. GCJ (the GNU Compiler for Java) is under active 
development and has re-implemented a number of the more interesting Sun 
libraries, though there is still much to be done. It also has the advantage 
of producing code that runs considerably faster than Kaffe, and on par or 
better than Sun's latest JDK1.4.
