I am not very sure it would still be possible to use Eclipse in order to 
develop KDEJava apps. That may render KDEJava less attractive to some people 
(me included :)

Otherwise, I think tighter integration with gcj can only help, especially at 
autotools level. From my point of view, developing with the JDK runtime and 
distributing the compiled binaries would be ideal -- that is, until an 
opensource jdk becomes standard part of any distribution.
