Less so, I would have thought. Since there is no virtual machine
involved, there is no worries about which version of the JVM is
implemented in Firefox.
I intend to write a C wrapper to the Gestalt API. This will then be
usable from PHP, Python, Ruby etc. Then all I need to do for Firefox
is to implement the C++ class and forward calls to the C wrapper.

I don't think so. You would need to call the applet from the C++
class. It would seem more sensible to me to call the Saxon API
directly via JNI.
