You've asked for a call for ideas, but not given any indication of 
process. Are you going to evaluate everything that comes in and pick the 
best a la Coin? Or allow anyone to send in patches? Who decides what is 
in and what is out?

Since its obviously not going to be decided by a Java SE 7 JSR, it would 
be useful to know the answers, before we all waste lots of time on 
discussions about methods that might or might not be used.
