On the occasion of subscribing to this list for the sake of
exchanges about @Contended, I figure that it is also worth
alerting folks who haven't heard about IBM's PackedObject
proposal that they now have released some slides etc at

This is a VM-level approach to supporting value/struct/tuple
types, that I hope catches on and turns into a JEP. Of all
the ways to do this sort of thing, it strikes me as being
among the few that might possibly succeed (and actually has
succeeded at least to the point of a J9 implementation).
