  Description     : Java Bridge Method Maker

When compiling a class or interface that extends a parameterized class
or implements a parameterized interface, the compiler may need to
create a synthetic method. These are also called bridge methods. JBoss
Bridger is a bytecode mangler for creating your own synthetic bridge
methods, which allows more dramatic source code changes while still
maintaining binary compatibility.

JBoss Bridger is a new build-dependency of jboss-modules.
