Well, if type erasure is the only problem they have, what do they plan to do? Breaking every code on this planet was ruled a non-option for Java 5 already ...

@mwolfetech: As far as I know, they are already planned for Java 8 with defender methods. They want to add things like foreach, map, filter to collections.

Aren't functions should instances of some interface? What's so special about them?

comment What do Java developers think of Scala?
null is Java's null pointer, Null is the "type" of it. None is one possible "state" of Option[T], a collection with either one or zero elements. Nil is an empty list. While you want to make it sound frightening, it isn't. Those types are not replaceable or interchangeable with each other and behave exactly as they should do.
