Some thoughts - I think if we can round up some committed volunteers
from the active JVM language communities (e.g. JRuby, Groovy, Scala,
Clojure, Jython, Kawa, and the newer ones just arriving), the feedback
will be more varied and, I think, more helpful to whatever expert
group forms later.
One step towards that would be having a downloadable, stable VM with
the coro patches available for people to play with. A shared DVCS
could be used for people to share their experiments. The shared
repository would help, in turn, to verify that ongoing work on Da
Vinci doesn't break existing code without people noticing.
