Yes, that's right, there is enough to support all the scenarios. The 
use-guava-if-it-happens-to-be-there scenario is somewhat awkward though 
as it would means using -addmods. On the other hand, the 
use-guava-if-someone-hands-me-a-guava-type scenario is straight-forward, 
it just means reading the module at run-time (easy).
