This is not a Jigsaw issue. This would be better addressed on
compiler-dev at openjdk.java.net.
-release works in a fairly general way by checking that -source,
-target, -bootclasspath+friends, are not set, and then providing values
for them. This implies that -release will internally call
fileManager.setLocationFromPaths(PLATFORM_CLASS_PATH, <<path>>) which
requires that the file manager should be a StandardJavaFileManager.
We can investigate whether it might be possible to generalize this.
