Hi folks,

The thing is, it might be the case that we only have one loops thing in 
the pipelines we have in OpenJDK, but thanks to Cacio (hohum) we must 
consider that there are other implementations out there... which might 
want to take completely different approaches. So better to keep it clean 
and nice and not make any assumptions. Right?
