Has anyone done any work on porting Erlang to the JVM?

I know that the JVM is less than ideal (lack of tagged data types, lack 
of tail recursion, problems with dispatch).  However, the JVM has some 
advantages in terms of deployment, external OS control, and GUI 
integration that would be useful even in a fully interpreted mode.

Thanks,
