JDK8: Improved Iterator

One of my favorite changes in Java 8, default methods on interfaces, adds this gem to venerable Iterator:

    default void remove() {
        throw new UnsupportedOperationException("remove");
    }

By default now when you implement an iterable you need not supply "remove()". Beautiful.

There is also a new, defaulted "forEachRemaining(Consumer)".
