I hereby propose the creation of Project Lambda.  The primary goals
of this Project will be to formulate a new, simplified proposal to
add first-class functions and lambda expressions (a.k.a. "closures")
to Java, and to create a prototype suitable for JDK 7 [1].

I request sponsorship from the Compiler Group.  Jon Gibbons and I
will serve as the Moderators of this Project.

- Mark
