The bad news is that I don't think Clojure can benefit from JVM 7's invokedynamic. The good news is that it is unnecessary, because Clojure's compiler is already efficient, and entirely bypasses all the pesky problems other dynamic JVM languages have, for which invokedynamic was introduced. (I work a lot with Rhino, JRuby, Jython, Groovy and Quercus (a JVM PHP engine), and can anecdotally say that Clojure and Quercus are "fastest" of their breed for the kind of web development work I do.)
