Java 8: new method proposal FileSystems::newFileSystem(Path path, Map<String,?> env, ClassLoader loader)

FileSystems static methods are inconsistent. I would expect that "newFileSystem" methods will be same for URI and Path.

newFileSystem for Path is missing "env" parameter. So I can't create ZIP file system from Path (with "create=true").

This was needed as workaround for Bug ID 7156873 (already fixed in Java7u40-b1).

  Should I create record to bug tracking system?

  Thank you.
