BTW, the JVM seems to be a must, since there are interesting programs in the
Java out there. I've heard about htttpd or even WWW browser written fully in
Java. I'll check the Java source code if I could port it.

I don't know if gcc optimizes it automagically. But I know you can use

goto *table[index]
