Does this use Java 8?

I don't think so.
I'm in favour of "small" components.

Take into account that Commons Lang is probably less stable
than "FastMath": CL's top-level package name is now "lang3"
whereas this functionality would be located in a package whose
name would never change.

Also, since the JDK itself is going to be "modular", it is a
bit odd to go in the opposite direction.
