I don't think we want to get into mapping package names. Instead the
right thing would be to re-visit those places where it was previously
necessary to incorporate third party libraries to see if they make sense
as modules now.

It's doesn't make sense in module mode because the boot class path goes
away. Once we have the modulepath support in then it should make it easy
without needing to installing a module.
