JForum and Google App Engine

I'm thinking of implementing JForum DAO interfaces using JPA to try it at Google App Engine.
I've spent like 15 minutes researching this possibility so i'm not pretending on any expert vision or something.
That's why i decided to ask those who have experience with JForum: are there any serious reasons to not trying to port JForum to GAE?

Sorry for my english and thanks in advance for any answers.

FWIW - JForum 3 is scrapping the DAO stuff in favor of using Hibernate. You COULD implement them in JPA, but it would be limited to the current version.

You might check to see if Hibernate and GAE can already play together...

Also, jForum uses the local file system for storing uploaded information such as Avatar images, file attachments, and the like. GAE doesn't allow this. You will have to either disable these features or rewrite them.

I'm interested in porting JForum3 to work with Google App Engine. I'm curious if it's possible to have a branch created for this purpose? Also I'm interested to know if anyone else may be interested in assisting this process?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
