jrtfs should use the native implementation when targeting the current 
runtime of course.

However, when the target runtime is different then the safest is to use 
the pure-java implementation. I think this will become more obvious when 
jrtfs is updated to work on JDK 9 but targeting a different JDK 9 build.
