Subject Old bytecode targets
Date Mon, 03 Sep 2018 12:33:26 GMT
I'm working on adding Java 9, 10, and 11 bytecodes to the 2.5 branch, and
9, 10, and 11 bytecodes when using invokedynamic to master, when I noticed
we allow the targets to go back quite a ways.

Should we continue to let the Groovy compiler target Java 4, 5, 6, and 7 in
master, given that master requires Java 8+?  I can't think of a valid use
case where this would be useful.  What do you think of removing them?
