   I thought some of these compilers rather perverted Java by eliding the
   features that made the language cool in the first place (dynamic
   loading, for instance), but that's the price you have to pay.  

When I looked into this once, I remember finding that some of the
batch compilers could not handle dynamic loading at all; some required
you to predeclare what classes you might ever dynamically load, which
is not much better; and one actually claimed to handle dynamic loading,
I think with a byte-code interpreter that could allow calls betwen
batch-compiled and interpreted code.  I never tried any of them though.
