I put a new webrev out with the change suggested by Paul, using file.indexOf(“!/“) instead of file.endsWith(“!/“).

I think we should push this changeset since URLClassLoader has always accepted the jar:…!/ URL and all this changeset does is enable it  to support multi-release jars.  And create an issue to track the change to the URLClassLoader api.
