Hopefully in time it will be possible to drop jdk9/client and have the 
changes to the client libraries pushed to jdk9/dev along with everything 
else. This would make things a lot simpler to understand and would also 
ensure that jdk9/dev always has the latest bits. I would expect it would 
reduce the integration effort too.
