I would really like to see support for value types (aka "structs") added

bulk quantities of small, simple objects.
Its an issue with a very low profile in the Java community, it seems.
I'd be interested in hearing from others who want, or better yet, are
working towards, this goal.
Ive written up a post outlining my case for value type support:
My motivation for here is the belief that the Da Vinci project remains
the least unlikely pathway by which value type support will be
implemented, given that reviews of the JVM & bytecode specs don't
exactly happen all the time.
