      Description

        In 12.1.4 there is non-normative text explaining how this preview feature increases the number of methods that are considered a *candidate* for execution. It correctly observes there are 12 basic forms:

        1-3: {public, protected, package} void main()
        4-6: {public, protected, package} void main(String[])
        7-9: {public, protected, package} static void main()
        10-12: {public, protected, package} static void main(String[])

        It then *erroneously* claims that supporting `String...` as an alternative for `String[]` doubles this number to 24. It doesn't; it increases the number by 6 to 18.
