I'm triaging all outstanding String bugs/RFEs.
In light of Mike's recent changes to hashing, I'm seeking opinions on
what should be done with bug # 6932858 -- "(str) Tune hashCode() of
String". Although we can't change the specification for
String.hashCode(), we would certainly be willing to consider
optimizations. We would like to close 6932858 as WONTFIX because it
includes deviations from the spec but don't want to lose any optimizations."
