If the plan is for Groovy 3 to depend on JDK8 and Groovy 4 to depend on
JDK9 then yes. However is there a need to be quite so conservative?
Groovy has so often had "hacks" so a version of Groovy could make use
of more recent JDKs and yet still work on "long past end of life"
versions of JDK. In this vein Groovy 3 could have a JDK9 variant using
Graal. This option would, I feel, be a good marketing line for Groovy.
