Agreed on the need for the method (unfortunately). My original email
suggested leaving empty() named as is, or changing to ofEmpty(). I'm
not a huge fan of just Stream.of(), as although it is consistent with
the other of(...) methods, it is less clear to read.
In a time-series library I wrote recently, I went with ofEmpty(), and
I think it turned out quite clear. Writers get the IDE help from a
common prefix, and readers get something meaningful.
