  Summary: Introduce scoped values, which enable a method to share
  immutable data both with its callees within a thread, and with child
  threads. Scoped values are easier to reason about than thread-local
  variables. They also have lower space and time costs, especially
  when used together with virtual threads (JEP 444) and structured
  concurrency (JEP 480). This is a preview API.
