Ah! Let's just go back to coding in C, then. I cannot see any 
justification for everything and the kitchen-sink being glommed into the 
Java APIs. If people want these sort of static methods, they're 
pretty-much all available in other libraries (Apache Commons, etc.)

Must they /really/ be added to the morass that the Java APIs have become?

(Sorry: As a non-contributor I probably don't have the mana to make such 
a comment, but this proposal really punches a lot of my buttons.)
