Looks good, just one comment.


This method has:

1578         private MethodHandle restrictReceiver(MemberName method, MethodHandle mh, Class<?> caller) throws IllegalAccessException {
1589             assert(mh instanceof DirectMethodHandle);  // DirectMethodHandle.copyWith

Why not make the second parameter be "DirectMethodHandle mh" ?
