And users don't like having deep conflicting libraries in their
dependency tree :)

There are other important issues besides BCEL-209, the LVTT issues
should be fixed for example if we want to claim Java 5 support.

If your company needs a BCEL version compatible with Java 8 you can
compile the version from the 6.0-RC3 tag, it isn't perfect but still
better than the latest stable release.
