Can you guys give us a quick overview of the "new build tool" and "build
refactoring"? Is this the JFX build tools you are talking about, the JRE
build or something else altogether? How does Gradle fit into the mix.

I've just started a pretty big undertaking to make a build library and use
this in a Maven plugin. It would be great to know in advance if this work
is going to be superseded by anything you guys are doing and/or whether it
is stuff that can be leveraged to save me time.

Additionally I am trying  (slowly) to work out how to build compact JRE
profiles for desktop so would be good to know if any of this could overlap
with that.
