    You don't need java for an OO port.


    Sorry, hasty posting.
    Older versions did make use of Java.
    But then, older versions also relied on X11.
    I haven't cleared up whether Java is still required or not (but then, most of Java is now covered by a GNU license making it a possibility too).

    Now that I've looked up the basic requirements for porting, there doesn't seem to be that many hurdles.
    Just a lot of work that a few skilled programmers might manage (with time).

    Still, have you looked at the current state of Cinnamon Writer?

    Still not out of beta yet, but a pretty good start.
