I think we can do this in phases, starting out with jlink picking up the 
runtime version and using that to select the resources from the modular 
JAR would be a good start. At some point we will have an update module

can find java.base and then use its version (as opposed to the runtime 
version) when finding modules.

If you look at the other jlink tests then you'll see that they skip 
silently when on an exploded image (no packaged modules, meaning no JMOD
