But, in order to have Tapestry using Java 8 in its sources and compile to  
Java 6 or 7 we will be able to use most of the new syntax, but none of the  
Java 8-introduced classes and interfaces like streams. I'm not sure how  
much we can use Java 8 in Tapestry keeping it runnable under Java 7. Of  
course, this is someone we should research.
