I'm not clear on the purpose of the Kindlet Jailbreak. Does this allow Kindlets to "reach" outside the /mnt/developer/us sandbox? If so, kif and mangle and Endless Sudoku and KNotepad and several other Kindlets could really benefit from this.
A rather general question.
So a rather general answer: Yes.

For compiled applications, you will probably want to make them a part of the */extensions/system part of the tree.

There is a git repo for that work -
