I haven't even given it a test drive yet, but I plan too, and I agree
it sounds quite revolutionary.  Not revolutionary enough to make me a
Java developer though.  What I'd love to see is someone implement a
similar concept using Perl (which is probably considerably more
difficult than doing it with Java in some respects, but easier in the
way that Perl hacking is always more fun).
