------- Additional Comments From stevel@apache.org  2007-07-10 03:08 -------
1. yes, I am in favour of support for this. Anything that stops javac from
holding on to 10MB structures, alongside the 13MB structures that RMIC likes to
hold on two, would be welcome. 

2. It would be implemented as a new adapter behind the javac facade, which
already has support for msjvc, jikes, javac classic, javac modern.

3. the api implementation would have to use reflection so as to build on earlier
JVMs, and to degrade gracefully.

4. it would need tests and documentation; tests that only run on java1.6+

5. I would not make this the default; we'd leave it as is, maybe add a new
adapter "java6", and one alongside "latest" that always tries to use the most
modern adapter (i.e. on java7 it reserves the right to use something else)

Contributions of code tests and docs welcome.
