        What's an actual feasible timeline for anyone running JDK8? Most of the above improvements seem like they would only be supported on JDK8 and no earlier versions... seems to me that we wouldn't be able to drop Java6 and Java7 support for at least 3-4 more years at the earliest.

        Yep, just some thoughts on what might be possible, transcribed to JIRA for posterity (if it comes around).

        I would guess three years. HBase (as a project in some form) has been around since 2007 so could conceivably be still going then.

        Probably it will also be possible to run on the bleeding edge in 2.
