I agree.

Jacks exists for compiler testing.  I definitely advocate that Java
compiler developers work with the Jacks project when writing tests.  I
intend to push gcj in that direction as time permits.  I've already
occasionally run gcj against Jacks and tried to fix bugs.

I'm unaware of any JVM testing project.  There's nothing preventing us
from making a new module in the Mauve CVS if someone wants to pursue
