JamVM package has been removed from Debian Unstable on Feb 2010 [1] by "ROM; 
lack of interest, alternatives exists".
But it seems JamVM project recently regained interrest [2] by providing a new 
VM implementation for OpenJDK6 classlib [3]. Whereas, at the same time, 
CacaoVM activity seems to be decreasing).

For people willing to (re-)package this software :
- look into pkg-java repository for starting point
- (maybe) provide a jamvm-source package to be able to package it inside 
openjdk6
