I saw a google project with some stuff in it, but it looked long
abandoned. Only 5 revisions are in the repository, and it doesn't
really touch on the DatagramChannel with multicast support.
I had a conversation last night with the person that wrote the NIO.2
backport for IcedTea v6. He seemed of the opinion there were too many
changes to com.sun.* to make a good backport. He said you'd end up
repackaging too much for it to be worth it.
Here is a log of the conversation if you're interested:
Anyway, he was on irc.oftc.net in #openjdk.
