there's nothing implemented yet. I'm spending time thinking about it for now. (Well, I'm on Christmas break currently, so I'll keep thinking about it from January 7 :-) )
What can be expected is that I will probably soon start prototyping something. The first step will be creating something that's suitable for Nashorn, and then try to generalize it so it's useful for other languages as well. I haven't been publicly discussing it, but this list is as good discussion forum for it.
