EPFL took a single change off the 2.8 development branch and grafted it onto
2.7.5 without testing beyond the standard Scala tests, without any beta
period, without any discussion on scala-internals, and without any notes to
the various stake-holders in the Scala community.  The change seems to break
existential types.  Lift will not compile with the change.  Code compiled
with the change will likely not work with 2.7.5 and code compiled under
2.7.5 will have different pickling (serialization) of Scala-related metadata
in the class files.

So, stay as far away from 2.7.6 as you can.
