PS Two of the three adjustments to Project Coin features are now in JDK 9
builds: allowing @SafeVarargs on private methods and allowing
try-with-resources statement to reuse final / effectively final resource
variables instead of always declaring a new resource [1].

Please give the new features a try with your own code and report any issues
to compiler-dev at openjdk.java.net.
