Actually, programs could still be installed and ran by the kernel by having a JITless non-native operation. So even if a JIT is not supported, there could still be a kind of interpreter that can run programs. KernelProgram can then be simulated by the kernel itself. This would be a kind of hybrid approach so to speak but it can work. The interpreter would just run as threads from within the kernel, using the kernel's execution domain to run code and such. The only problem with this is that there would need to be JARs for the native run-time and such. So basically for an interpretive setup for non-JIT systems there would need to be a copy of everything that exists anyway. So basically it cannot be done anyway, not without having hacks in the native code to allow such a mixed state.


The SWM classes are pretty ugly.
