Sorry again for the repeated and long delays; the last two years have
been eventful in other areas.
As you may have seen, I've just recently pushed a large changeset
primarily addressing performance tuning in BigDecimal . With some
other large reviews I have oustanding and JavaOne, etc., I think I
should be able to have your BigInteger patches integrated into JDK 8 by
the end of the year.
After the changes are in JDK 8, it is possible for them to be backported
to the JDK 7 update train.
