It's absolutely true that findMissingSince is a crappy script that is very
brittle due to parsing generated javadoc, and has to be tweaked every time
javadoc output changes.  OTOH, it is one of those crude yet effective tools
that may be the shortest path to finding jdk8's missing @since.  I
challenge you to demonstrate a tool that can do better!

In any case, please share whatever tool you end up using in openjdk.
