things to improve java:
improve some of the function naming (as mentioned earlier, length() or size() )
add kill() or something to network/ files streams etc, that isn't allowed to throw exceptions, for "panic code" - exception handlers, when your trying to cleanly kill a process are just irratating
enable short in for loops (it autocasts to an int then crashes)
make casting a left hand expression, not right handed. ie
MyType t (MyType)=myVector.get(35);
improve the docs (or the code) for the wait/notify pair.
enable the system.properties thingie to be used the way you can with BASH environments (or sh, ksh etc)
