Java 7 is already end-of-life, as of April 2015. Given that part of the
idea of starting version 5.0 is to be able to remove deprecated items and
general cleanup, it would seem prudent to me to at least *start* HC 5.0
with a non-EOL Java version. In addition, the Streams API that were added
to in java.util.streams might be very useful especially in an HTTP/2.0
implementation, although that might be a separate discussion.

I will also note that you should weigh my opinion against the fact that I
haven't had a lot of time for contributing recently...
