Ok - keep me updated on this. IIRC the lambda stuff currently does NOT 
produce any bytecode (last time i checked it simply wrote null intead of 
the invoke dynamic).

If this has changed in the meantime this is good news. So report back 
your findings I could make a JDT_Beta download available from efxclipse.org.

It might make sense to host them in an extra branch instead of a JIRA, 
not? I think we should setup a bitbucket repo where we attach this (and 
patches who will follow) keep stuff compiling on JDK7 (see current 
RoboVM-Thread which does NOT support invoke dynamic).

Danno could we do it in your repo?
