OpenJDK b135 has JVM support for the new package name java.dyn.invoke, and therefore the new API names can be used with a b135 JVM plus a suitable -Xbootclasspath patch. In b136 or b137 the JDK changes will follow, so it will work "out of the box".
Here's my question: Does anybody care if we delete JVM support for java.dyn in the very next OpenJDK build? That's what we'd prefer to do.
