yes, a final jython probably should come before this!  To get jython hook stuff included in the JDK might be best attackable via the JDK Collaboration project.

I do find myself wondering how Jython is going to be developed once Java starts making it easier to integrate dynamic languages with it.  Do you fork Jython and start developing it against the new stuff or do you push the projects Java demands up to Java 6,7,8... ?

It has been a long outstanding wish of me to implement the jython
part, but I gotta concentrate on Jython itself first ...

Best wishes,
