RFE: No this qualifier needed for method references

To obtain a method reference for an instance method you need to write:

  instance#methodName( argTypes )

If the instance is this, then:

  this#methodName( argTypes )

It would be nice and more consistent with Javadoc, in particular, if
you could say:

  #methodName( argTypes )

IE this is implied (or the default if you prefer).
