JEP 286: Local-Variable Type Inference: Usage

As a prerequisite, we would need to update the minimum boot JDK to JDK 
10, which I was going to propose doing anyway -- it seems the right time 
now that JDK 10 is out.

I have no objections to then allowing the use of 'var' in new code.

Do any others have any concerns?
