DeclaredType represents a class
or interface type, the latter being a use

TypeElement for more on this distinction.
The supertypes (both class and interface types) of a declared
type may be found using the
Types.directSupertypes(TypeMirror) method. This returns the
supertypes with any type arguments substituted in.
This interface is also used to represent intersection types.
An intersection type is implicit in a program rather than being
explictly declared. For example, the bound of the type parameter
<T extends Number & Runnable>
is an intersection type. It is represented by a
Number as its superclass and
Runnable as its
