This list does tend to be very quiet.  The best way to elicit some
kind of response is to post a 'webrev' containing your changes:

1.  Check out the tl forest of OpenJDK7: hg fclone
http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk7/tl
2.  Apply the patch to that tree and test it works
3.  Use the webrev tool
(http://blogs.sun.com/jcc/entry/webrev_script_updated) to generate a
webrev.
4.  Upload that somewhere.

If you have issues with generating the webrev or posting it, then just
post the output of hg diff as a patch to the list and I can turn it
into a webrev for you easily enough.
