The Project Coin mailing list is not an alternate forum to submit 
requests for enhancements of the Java specification.  Rather, it is a 
venue for the analysis and refinement of thought-through proposals to 
change the language.

If one is not willing or able to work through implications of the 
proposal, it it not appropriate to be sent to the list.

Generally the discussion of proposals sent to Project Coin should occur 
on the Project Coin list.  Besides making the current status of 
proposals easier to track, various parties have expressed interest in 
why previous language design decisions were made and having all the 
traffic on Project Coin makes that retrospective analysis possible.
