The code is part of an OpenJDK project, though, it's already the
existing Java rasterizer.

Of course I'm fine with giving it a formal home in the Graphics
Rasterizer project (where it naturally belongs), but let's also try to
be a bit more pragmatic, this code is in hold since more than one year
now, the JEP process can be started before giving a formal home, or at
least concurrently to that. It would be a shame if the process
overhead kills the project again.
