Please see http://nagoya.apache.org/wiki/apachewiki.cgi?JamesV2Plans.  I
have not, nor has anyone else, yet updated it for Sergei's proposed changes.

I am prepared for v3 to take a year, but I don't expect that it will.  That
all depends upon how much time and effort people are willing to put into it.
In the meantime, we have a very stable v2 codebase, and certainly expect us
to continue to evolve James v2 such as we can do without API changes.

Definitely on the books for v3.  I don't know if it makes sense to try
retrofiting that type of change into v2.  Serge seems to have some prototype
code for this, and may be the best one to answer.
