Apologies if this was discussed in the past (and if so, please point
me at the discussion).

As the various commons libraries switch to Java 8 minimum what do
people thinking of mechanical migrations to use new languages
features. For example making of use of method references, stream API,
etc. Is this something we should only do when we're touching the
relevant code, or are wider migrations reasonable?
