Ni Naoto,

Where will this be pushed to initially?

It is a big set of changes, albeit localized (no pun intended :) ), so 
it would be good to see this get some bake time before propagating up. 
Further we're just about to have a "flag day" between hotspot and JDK 
due to JSR292 changes, so it would be good to also add some space 
between those changes and these ones - if that is feasible.

This isn't my call, I'm just airing concerns :)
