Reusing module name token `*` in -d

Another feature request from the trenches regarding multi-module
compilation. (It is possible that there was a similar thread a couple of
days/weeks (?) back but I didn't find it.)

It would be nice to have the ability to specify module specific target
folders, so they do not automatically end up in

It seems obvious (which could very well make it stupid) to reuse the
asterisk here and allow something like

	--module-path mods
	--module-source-path "./*/src/main/java"
	-d "./*/target/classes"
	-module initial.module

I have not thought through how this might or might not work with
multiple module source paths. It looks like the only tractable approach
would be to not allow more than one -d element.

 so long ... Nicolai
