I don't know if that is really feasible as you would somehow need to 
identify the layer and then somehow interpose on the ModuleFinders that 
the container creates. Instead, I think it needs the container to create 
a ModuleFinder that finds the patched modules. Yes, this means doing 
something similar to patch support that the JDK does for the modules in 
the boot layer but it would be under the control of the container. It 
shouldn't be a lot of code to this do.
