--limit-modules is needed because jdk.compiler.interim contains the same 
packages as the system modules jdk.compiler, so we need to prevent the 
runtime from resolving jdk.compiler (and the other base interim modules).

I spent a lot of trial and error before arriving at the set of arguments 
used here.
