Here's a naive question about JVM/AVM:

Instead of creating a new AVM, is technically and politically feasible
to extend the JVM "standard" to add the capabilities we'd like to see
in an AVM?  Then, if I target code to this JVM/AVM, I need only have
users fetch the latest version of the JVM.

I'm worried that a separate AVM would go nowhere if it's just targeted at
the Ada niche market.
