JInterface is pretty simple. Implementing selective receive would be quite
a job and I guess the code would look ugly as hell (constructing terms is
not nice with jinterface). Maybe Java 8's lambda expressions could make it
a bit prettier, but I wouldn't bet on that.

There are a few Java libraries that extend the functionality, among which
erlide has its own. I am planning to extract selected parts and publish
them separately and even submit them to OTP, maybe jinterface in v18 will
look better...
