      Description

      The following source:

        class Props extends Hashtable<String,String> {}

      is translated by javac info

        class Props extends Hashtable {
          /*synthetic*/ public Object remove(Object x0) {
              return super.remove(x0);
          }
          /*synthetic*/ public Object put(Object x0, Object x1) {
              return super.put((String)x0, (String)x1);
          }
          /*synthetic*/ public Object get(Object x0) {
              return super.get(x0);
          }
        }

      These bridge methods are unnecessary, and interfere with
      retrofitting java.util.Properties as Hashtable<String,String>.
