Does Oracle offer a patent grant so that we can *use* the lambda prototype,
whether from our own builds or prebuilt by Oracle? The GPLv2 license
doesn't include such a patent grant, and the Java patent promise doesn't
apply because the lambda prototype isn't an implementation of any Java
platform specification. Without such a patent grant we would be violating
Oracle's patent rights by running the prototype.
