My preference would be to get Doug's update in as soon as we can, mostly 
because the changes are significant and it would be good to get them 
well exercised (and the performance/memory characterized too) before 
jdk8 starts to get locked down. I know the javac lint warnings are 
important but it's lower risk and at least some of the code in the lint 
patch will be replaced. I would expect it would be straight-forward to 
sort out any remaining issues later.
