It would indeed. A brief look at
http://code.google.com/p/kahlua/wiki/KahluaManual tells me that many
of the "top level" design decisions are settled in very similar ways
in both Jill and Kahlua. A Java double (actually often Double in
Jill) is a Lua number. A Lua string is a Java String. The GC is the
JVM GC, and so on.
I forgot to mention that Jill doesn't implement io.* (that page
reminded me), and that's of course because it's more or less
meaningless of CLDC 1.1
If I have more time, I'd like to look at the other implementations too.
