dog is nice coded in java.
why recoding it ? performance ?
nice to go from langage to another, no ?
and java isn't clean ?
ok jvm is heavy, that a bad point.
but many projects include already a jvm.
an other point, I never have several servers with info -t dog, when the 
others write nice 0 and 4000 nice in directory. and VM seam to write in 
only one server.
I'll check about that, but not priority
