Yes, the baseline is vanilla javac.

I don't think Louis had provided a patch, but just described what is
being done there, and then asking if he should prepare the patch. I
think it would be better to let Louis et al. forward-port their javac
changes to StringConcatFactory -- that would be the improvement for our
(quite naive) concat translation strategies. This JEP is about letting
the development happen without messing with javac all the time :)
