Can you expand a bit on this? If you are generating modules at run-time,
maybe generating module-info.class files or via the Builder API, then I
would expect that you at least know what packages are in the module and
which packages are exported unconditionally. It sounds a bit strange to
create a module without knowing anything about its contents (assuming
that is what this is about).
