@New is a pretty specialized thing. It's mainly for writing producer
methods that return instances of a class that is already a bean,
letting you override the metadata specified by the class itself.

@New is for getting a @Dependent scoped bean of a bean which has a normal
scope. So for instance, the bean has @RequestScoped annotation, but you want
to get a @Dependent scoped instance of it.
