(a) I think it would be ok if the new parser is only usable if java8 is 
used as long as it is not the default. If for example 2.5.0 is going out 
with the old parser as default, then I see no problem in delivering 
2.5.0 with a new parser, that will work only with java8.

(b) the MOP2 work I am doing right now is far from complete. The current 
work is based on what I did 2 years ago already, but was not happy with 
in the end. You can call it a continuation of that. But it is nowhere 
usable atm. And I still have one big limitation I would like to be 
lifted. While I can easily isolate classes and give them their own meta 
class realm, it is not so easy to do the opposite and let a class 
participate in a foreign realm, without knowing it. I would like not to 
rely on a caller sensitive logic if possible.
