We can implement interfaces via createDynamicProxy() (not very elegant), but we cannot extend native java classes.  The majority of other JVM languages have supported this for many many years.

It is time to add this feature to the language to be competitive.  Add the ability for a CFC to inherit from a native Java class.  Take it a step further and allow a CFC to implement Java classes natively.  Creating dynamic proxies is a workaround, and not an elegant solution to the language.
