Since we're talking about a user perspective, I take the chance of my  
first post here :-)

+1 on Dan's quote.

Let's consider expectations about River. We all said that it's also a  
great "marketing opportunity" to attract new attention on Jini. We  
all know that one of the problems is that Jini requires a different  
mental model, but it pays because it works - I mean, on a blog you  
can give a bold answer and say: "ok, maybe it's not easy, but once  
you've learnt it you can rely on it."

For this reason, if "users" above means a restricted group, no  
problems (please forgive my ignorance but it's the first time I  
follow an incubator project). If it means the wolves, I'd be worried  
about "thrashable builds"...
