BTW, you don't need the -L option when the module is in the system
IMO, I don't think "java -m com.greetings" is not command-line
friendly. "-m" option is a way to tell the launcher to run the
application in module mode. With "-m" option, it'll launch the
application in legacy mode as today.

I think you meant the default module. This only saves to type the
module name for one single module in a module library.

It already does as you no longer need the classpath in modules :)
