currently there are discussions for implementing COM in the
kernel and/or scripting the kernel from userland, but Linus hasn't made up
his mind yet.

My wishlist for 2.8:
-jvm (should boost my swing apps)
-sql support to query kernel table and fs data
-lisp and prolog interpreters (don't have a use for this but I'm sure
somebody will need it)

The kernel folks have taken a seriously wrong turn here.  They should
have delayed the preview release until the garbage collector was
ready.  That's where the real value for these patches starts.
