Hi Jim,

Reservoir Labs is working on a MIPS port of OpenJDK.  Specifically, we are targeting 
MIPS64 right now, but we're interested in generalizing to other MIPS variants too, 
especially MIPS32.  We are also interested in other possible architecture ports.

Yes, something like this sounds useful as an organizational tool.
