David,

Great way to resolve this. Thank you for splitting up these issues.

Thank you for the webrev relative to the default branch - that makes it much easier for
me to see where we are in nestmates relative to no nestmates. That was the only
additional webrev I was looking for.

You can Mandy can work out how to do the assertion - I appreciate having the check there.
I don’t know where else that is enforced with MethodHandles - but if it is enforced elsewhere
then this would not be needed.

thanks,
Karen

Consequently the check can now return true for both nestmate classfiles and earlier classfiles! That is wrong.

I'm tempted to not only revert back to the original isSamePackageMember() but to also restore the original implementation with no Reflection.areNestMates() call - as nestmates will still pass the enclosing-class check. That also avoids the penalty that applies to pre-nestmate classfiles, by avoiding the guaranteed-to-fail nestmate check. My only reservation is that in the future, when nestmates need not originate in source code, and so the enclosing class check may not apply, then we would need to restore the direct nestmate check. - and again be confronted with an awkwardly named method.
