I don't follow - why are they not worth adding now? Becuase they should
have been in JDK 1.0? Because JDK 7 is about to release? Some other
reason? How and who is deciding?
Over the past few weeks I've been tempted to ask for sponsorship of more
than one idea, change, or useful method (there are lots we could add).
But the process for what is accepted and what isn't seems very
arbitrary. As such, I'm just not bothering right now (nor am I working
on JSR-310, as the same arbitrary rejection could apply to that to).
