New candidate JEP: 335: Deprecate the Nashorn JavaScript Engine

I use Nashorn heavily (as well as Rhino) to power a number of applications I’ve custom-built for customers.

So I’m quite concerned about the news it may be going away. Although a Nashorn that lags other JavaScript tools isn’t the ideal, it’s still significantly better than the alternatives as they are currently available.

As this is apparently the place to give this feedback, I wanted to do so. Thank you!
