This has already been done, in JDK 9 as part of the JEP 201 effort to 
reorganize the source code into modules. So while it may have been 
originally developed along with Nashorn, it is its own module now.

I suspect the only impediment to it working outside of the JDK is the 
special handling for @CS methods.
