Proposal to enhance jdeps tool to search split packages/add some kind of general API

Hi there,

I like to do some early adoption tests with software using the new module system. Now we got an unknown amount of split packages in our system, the we will need to fix in order to migrate our codebase.

I could imagine, that there are other potential users of the JDK, that have the same problem to solve. So I think it would be a good thing to have some detection within the jdeps tool or even have some kind of an API that could be used otherwise (as of in a IDE).

Now I wanted to know what you think about this? I would also be prepared to do some work in that area.
