As for Java 8, does making the switch require API breakage?  If we modify existing code to take advantage of java 8's nice features, yes, that could break API, but do we have enough time to make all the changes we'd want to?  Or will we want to continue those changes for the next major release after Mars (requiring a 10.0 version)?

I think it would be worth switching to Java 8 without breaking the API. We wouldn't be able to Java8-ify the APIs but there is a lot that can be done internally. Also, the "End of Public Updates" for Java 7 is April 2015.
