Oracle pushes first version of Lambda/Closures implementation

Test cases may not be the best source of coding gems, as they're probably testing the weirder stuff.  But you can now see some test cases, and therefore the evolving syntax here.

Oracle has a tough task in adding closures to a language that has checked exceptions, minimal type inference, and without breaking compatibility of zillions of lines of existing code.  Go Snoracle!
