What about javadoc ? With the new module options more so for
the tool than the doclet. Can we have a javadocTask ?

> This is a test-only change, which updates the ToolBox test library
> from being a single top-level class in the unnamed package to a small
> set of classes in a new named package. Although this does increase the
> amount of overhead in the test description header, it also allows us
> to be more precise in the test dependencies, such that we can reduce
> otherwise unnecessary compilation dependencies. This will also make it
> more practical to extend the set of supported ToolBox tasks, such as
> for jmod, jlink etc, so that only tests that would want to use such
> tasks would incur any need to build the tasks.
> The update is primarily for javac tests, but also includes changes
> for tests for jshell and sjavac which also use the ToolBox test library.
> There is no significant change to the functionality of any tests. The
> build dependencies have been verified by running each test separately
> within jtreg, using a clean JTwork/classes directory for each test.
