In general, no.  I plan to write up some general retrospective comments 
on the proposals that were and were not chosen for further consideration 
in the coming weeks.  However, there will be more detailed analysis and 
discussion to get the set of "for further consideration" proposals down 
to the final set of proposals.

I think we have to see how round I works out first ;-)

Thinking about and working on possible language is great fun of course, 
but I think in the near term the Project Coin list needs to focus on JDK 
7 related work.

It's an interesting project!
