The beginning of the road to value types - sort of - well not really, but a
very interesting change for Java nonetheless!

First idle thought - could this still work on older VMs by default of
ignoring the additional bytecode specialisation and just using old Boxed
primitive collections.

Needless to say the LJC will start running hackdays on this feature as
Brain et al have some prototypes to throw our way.
