    Well, there is a requirement that anything new of a significant size orc
    complexity that gets developed under a JEP and then integrated into the
    mainline repos will have someone available to maintain it.
    JC, can you provide assurance that Google staff involved in pushing any
    code upstream will also be available to help perform that maintenance
    effort, in this case presumably as members of the serviceability team?
    n.b. Modulo the above detail I'm all for this proposal. I'd be very
    pleased if the project brings opportunities for Google either to
    upstream their existing work to everyone's benefit or, where for
    whatever reason that is not feasible, to help tailor existing upstream
    capabilities (such as JFR events) so they might encompass Google's
    downstream needs.
    It's very welcome to see Google so willing to contribute to OpenJDK.
