Hi Alex,

I would like to know your opinion about the bug in the subject. The 
related code is:

interface T2 { int f = 0; }

interface T extends T2 { int f = 0; }

class X  implements T {
     int i = T.super.f;

The reporter considers that JLS 15.11.2 doesn't mention interfaces 
explicitly and that for this reason this is a bug. Should the spec be 
read more generally, thus including interfaces?
