[hibernate-dev] Hibernate ORM and Java 8 usage

The use of Java 8 features in Hibernate ORM is starting to expand.  Luckily
it is still constrained to just tests.

However these usages make development in an IDE more and more difficult.
Previously this was isolated to hibernate-infinispan.  Now[1] this has
crept into hibernate-entitymanager.  We need to have a plan here.  Either
we stop using Java 8 anywhere, or we move to Java 8 and rely on
AnimalSniffer to make sure we are still compatible.

Votes?  Other options?
