This will most likely slip to 2.7.2, to be released in May 2016. I will note that I'm posting this note on Sept 22, 2015, exactly one year in advance of the planned released date for Java 9 :)

For Java 9, one thing I like is that it seems feasible to remove package scanning altogether for Java SE components, given the possibility of module reflection ( This seems at first glance preferable to our current approach of scanning rt.jar and also seems in the spirit of Project Jigsaw as well. We may be able to extend this to arbitrary jars in general, TBD.

It will be easy enough to test out these assumptions in Python code before  attempting changes in import logic.
