Straw man section 7: Method References

I realise that this section is TBD, but can I ask whether Field References
could also be considered at the same time. I realise that they are not really
part of closures, but once the basic syntax is in place for Method References
then Field References are a simple extension.
I can outline why I think it important to do Field References, but if you
regard it as totally out of court there is little point in starting. I would
however be very keen to help if this could be added, and I believe that
it would benefit Java to add this functionality. It is not a large change,
there are no JVM changes required and only one extra library
class required of which I already have a prototype.
