[forge-dev] Method.getReturnType questions

Hey Richard,

We don't return a JavaType because there's no way to tell if the type we
are returning is actually something we can get the sources of. We could
perhaps implement a strategy where if a JavaType is produced for a type
such as "java.lang.ArrayList", then we would need to throw
"MissingSourceException" if we attempt to perform any operations on that
class. Thoughts?

All good finds! This API was, as I hinted at before - quickly moved to a
state where it could be used, but never "polished") These are certainly
things we can clean up. Just put in JIRAs and we'll make sure the kinks get
worked out :)
