Yes, this might be. I'm afraid, this would become a BIG THING for me, as 
I'm not familiar with the JDK7 contribution process, Mercurial, and how 
to create a suitable NetBeans project to serve this.
I hesitate to install JDK7 on my system, as it is less than Beta.

Is there any sample NetBeans project regarding hacking the JDK7?
How can I commit my steps of work against your Mercurial server? (At I only have Subversion)
