This is in support of modularisation (ie jigsaw). After the fix
are loaded using Class.forName() as specified by the system property
sun.java2d.renderer. Note that only the built-in ones are actually supported
The mechanism is just for testing.
BTW since it happens that Oracle JDK includes the pisces classes as well
as the closed source ductus I note that its possible to compare the
or other characteristics easily in a closed build which has both by
to use pisces instead of ductus.
There's no regression test associated with this. I tested open & closed
(created for all platforms) with standard demos.
