Thanks! A MethodHandle pointing to a private method makes sense.
Still the javadoc for findSpecial explicitly mentions the constructor so
is there any reason for executing a constructor through a MethodHandle?
Also, what is the reason for the specialCaller argument? (Also referred
to as caller in the javadoc.)
