It might be useful to discuss (either on this thread or another) the long-term approach to

Short term (through Apache NetBeans graduation), it appears that Oracle is committed to maintaining
this code base. 

Medium term (Java 10?) there might need to be significant changes. Will Oracle be able/want
to keep nb-javac current?

Long term perhaps some of the Oracle resources working on nb-javac could make a more abstract
ide-javac (I didn’t quite follow the else-thread reference to this) so Apache NetBeans could
depend on a less-specific nb-javac.

If this doesn’t make sense, please disregard.
