Speeding java parts of the build?

Several days ago, Jolt JVM Daemon appeared at Freshmeat.net.

Jolt is a wrapper program that allows multiple invocations of the java, javac, javadoc, and jar tools to reuse the same JVM, thereby substantially improving the startup times of those tools.

OpenOffice.org's build system (when configured to build with Java support) uses java tools in many projects. Using this daemon, we could save *a lot* of time because there are too many invocations of Java virtual machine that is pretty expensive.

Any volunteer to have a look at it and integrate with OpenOffice.org build? -----
