Can we also get some feedback on specialization, please?

It should cover all the conversions outlined in the latest SotS. There
are a few known things that don't work quite right yet, things like:
- Nonstatic inner classes and local classes (we're close on this, though)
- super-calls inside generic methods
But, it should be enough to write an ArrayList-like class that is
generic in any-T.
To run it, just clone and build the valhalla repo (make images), and use
that as your JDK.
