I have updated the javadoc portion of the spec for constant-dynamic.
There are small but strategic changes to MethodType and MethodHandle,
as well as new classes to represent the "pull mode" of constant resolution.
The key changes relevant to the JVM are in package-info.html,
and (of course) in the forthcoming JVM spec. changes.

(I've given up sending attachments for now since the server
scrubs them.)
