A number of issues including some API changes have been addressed in the
Threeten Project and are to be integrated into jdk8-tl.
The changes are from Stephen Colebourne and myself, an OpenJDK reviewer 
is needed.

The webrev author comments include the Jira issues covered.


I expect folks are busy with JavaOne but did not want this to sit in my 
queue longer
since the deadlines for API freeze and Zero Bug bounce occur soon after j1.

Thanks, Roger
