Well, a more diplomatic way to put it: If Java is the problem, fix Java.
File a bug report or whatever they offer with Sun, I can seen no reason
at all why executing a system binary should be significantly slower with Java
than with C, so essentially this sounds to me like a case of "oh, we had
an intern implement this and not looked at the code ever since, nobody
cares anyway".
