[cdi-dev] Problem with JDK8 u60 and synthesized methods for lambdas now exposing annotations

I'd be concerned if we introduced text explicitly calling out code written
by the developer instead of generated by the compiler. What if I'm using
an annotation processor that generated implementations for CDI beans? Those
would get ignored.
Better to say something along the lines of synthesized methods are not
typically visible, therefore shouldn't be scanned.
