The branch has basically been me tossing ideas around but it has never
gotten any traction inside the dev team.

As others have said, we could do so in 1.x as well, if we really wanted
to. We've gone from Java5 to Java7 in several 1.x releases.

Right now I'm not sure whether a move to Java8 would alienate any
existing users. Also, I'm not sure we'd benefit from Java8 much without
changing the API.
