Might just be rumour, but apparently from April/May 2010 when J2SE7 hits the wild, there'll be this new keyword "module".
I *think* this means we can specify a J2SE compiler version to use with our source code, allowing a completely new top-level encapsulation.

I *think* this means we can change Java radically, without breaking backward compatibility.

I suppose I may as well just come straight out with it :
I want C# syntax aliasing

*adopts kung-fu stance, braces for that argument about inter-element indexing*

According to http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/summary?id=277, JSR-277 (which specifies the module system) is inactive, and thus won't be part of Java 7. In my view that's a good thing, because OSGi accomplishes much of the same, and has already been accepted as part of JSR-291.
