But the alternative is that nothing is going red, and the PL stays
broken until somebody notices it which might be too late to easily know
which change broke it.

Wouldn't it be possible to separate the "red/green lights" for the core
and for the PLs ? So the core stays green and the PLs go red... and stay
red until the PL maintainer fixes things. 

And I don't believe there's only one man who knows good Java around...
once PL/Java gets in the core I'm pretty sure there will be a lot of
people using it and caring about it.
