There would appear to be an interesting issue regarding the ability to
compile a modularized JDK, given that the compiler will defer to the
module system to interpret the dependencies in module-info files, but
the module system will not (yet) be available.
One possibly interesting approach would be to determine the minimal
reasonable subset of JDK sufficient to compile the module system
code. Once the module system code is available, the rest can be
compiled using that code. Thus the issue reduces to compiling those
initial module system classes.
