I've made public the following document:

which offers an overview of possible directions for pattern matching in 
Java.  This is an exploratory document and does not constitute a plan 
for any specific feature in any specific version of the Java Language. 
Similarly, though it may reference other features under consideration, 
this is purely for illustrative purposes.  There is no timetable on 
which these features might appear, if ever.

Over the next few weeks, I'm going to begin, slowly, discussing various 
aspects of pattern matching on the EG list.
