Bump. I'm happy to implement either of the alternatives I mentioned, but
was hoping to get feedback on the approach first.

> There are two related changes that may be worth considering:
> * now that -parameters will be ignored when compiling with --release < 8,

> * since this wasn't fixed in JDK 9, there are v51 class files in the wild
> that contain unexpected MethodParameters attributes. Should
> -Xlint:classfile be relaxed to avoid warning on those?
