I made the proposal knowing about this.

A few years ago, the JAMA project had been declared dead (although I do

A similar sounding name could be taken as a tribute... ;-)

This is also a fundamental question.

Given that we could not even agree to evolve with the JDK (last release 
CM had to be Java *5* source-compatible!), it would be a (bad) joke (or 
revolution!) to throw other languages into the discussion.
