Nice to see this implemented!
A next enhancement I would really like to see implemented is a JVMTI
event that makes available all JVM internal thread names. That would
enable us to see internal JVM thread names in profilers like Studio
I realize the JVMTI events fall under a different area than GC. But,
thought the enhancement was worth mentioning given this change.
