I would suggest that if the project finds that it needs to change the
interface between HotSpot and the libraries, serviceability tools, etc.,
and if the intention is to push the changes to those interfaces into the
mainline, that the project get broad agreement on the changes from the
impacted areas first. I read Neil's reply and documenting some of these
interfaces is welcome, it's just the concern that changes to these
interfaces are potentially disruptive.
