Java Brain Drain

I can't be the only one noticing this. Calvin Austin has just left Sun, following on the heels of Josh Bloch and Neal Gafter. These are not easily replaceable persons; these are leaders. The fact that they are all splitting within a few months of each other doesn't seem like coincidence. Something's going on. I've never had particularly good contacts within Sun -- anyone know the scoop?
