javac9 ??

I was thinking it was about running javac8 with jdk7 and not javac9 with 
I have no problem with the former but I'm strongly against the later,
there are several parts of javac that can be simplified by using lambdas 
instead of inner classes
so javac9 should not have a dependency on JRE n-2.
