The JavaOne talks specifically mention the need for code changes for
reflection code (adding readability IIRC). And I know there will be
lots of psuedo code that says:
if (!member.isPublic) {
  member = member.setAccessible(true)
which is also likely to have problems, because public no longer has
exactly the same meaning as today.
