as you probably have noticed, I've start hacking  on the
type-specialization prototype; the current state of this feature is
captured in . The first patch I've pushed adds support for the 'any'
type-variable 'modifier'. Aside from allowing it in the parser (and
setting a corresponding flag on the AST), the rest of javac is still
'any' agnostic - I plan to extend the compiler support in the upcoming
weeks, in order to add suitable semantics checks and bytecode
representation. As part of this first changeset, I've also added a new
source flag - 'valhalla' which is now being used as the default in the
context of this project.
Keep comments flowing, and enjoy the ride - I'm sure it'll be a fun one :-)
