I'n not sure what you mean that hotswap (or rather HotSwap) has been around since 1.4... do you perhaps mean HotSpot - the better jitter?
I haven't dug into the fine details, but here is a post from 2006 by Gilad Bracha, sometimes contributor to this list:
and the update to it is the slides I cited say there is a patch to support hotswap currently as of Sept 2009.
Perhaps Gilad is listening, and can provide some context.
