>JVM 7 has tail calls, 

Source, please? JSR-292 seems the most likely candidate so far,
and its draft doesn't seem to mention tail calls yet. As of March
this year, the people working on tail calls for mlvm [1], which
seems to be the experimentation ground for this, did not seem to 
expect any fast route:


There have been years of rumours and plans, so it would be 
nice to have concrete details, before any fp-on-jvm implementation
design starts to rely on this.
