Thanks.

To run it, just clone and build the valhalla repo (make images), and use

Unless I really need sleep (it is after midnight here) there are no links
from the project home page (http://openjdk.java.net/projects/valhalla/) to
the source repositories (http://hg.openjdk.java.net/valhalla). I imagine
this might cause confusion for casual users who don't know the mapping
between project names and repo urls and it would be nice to add it. Or even
link to http://hg.openjdk.java.net/valhalla/valhalla - since that's what
they'll need to hg clone.
