I’d go a little farther:  Surely such a tool exists, because
the JVM is not unique as an event source.  Even if exactly
the right tool (a “UL shipper” in the gist) does not exist,
it does not follow that we should create and maintain
such a thing.  That’s the job of cloud infrastructure
engineers, who do something different from JVM
engineers.  If the JVM puts special requirements on
such a tool, then we need to work with one or more
“UL shipper” tool providers to meet in the middle,
not go off and build our own.

Thanks for the good discussion!
