My main concern with proposals for closures in Java has always been that it has the potential of making multi-threading so transparent that you forget to think about issues you need to think about, much like happens again and again with mechanisms that make it so transparent to make remote procedure calls that you forget to handle the issues you really need to think about in that scenario.

Rather than write a long story here, I wrote my first blog post ever: http://tobega.blogspot.com/2008/02/java-closures-and-threads.html
