Allow lambdas to implement abstract classes

I remember the previous discussion and just retread it to be sure. The issue raised is with constructors that take arguments or throw checked exceptions. You could limit the lambdas to either functional abstract classes that:
1. Do not have any user supplied constructors
2. Either 1 above or has a user supplied no-arg constructor that does no throw a checked exception
Option 1. Is the most conservative, would the be an objection to 1.
