anyone using AsynchronousDatagramChannel?

We're thinking of removing AsynchronousDatagramChannel (it provides an
asynchronous channel for datagram-oriented sockets). This channel was
included in the API for consistency reasons. It's not needed for
scalability reasons. The implementation of this channel isn't up to
scratch (it's a prototype implementation), the spec needs a bit of work,
and there is testing work to do it. There are many other more important
things to get done and there's no reason why we can't bring it back, say
in jdk8. So I'm interested to know if anyone is actually using it? I
think it's only been mentioned once on this list.
