Hi Michael,

We realized that the javapackger CLI JEP wasn't quite ready, and was out 
of scope for JDK 10 anyway, so we withdrew it in order to file a new JEP 

Related to this, we are soliciting input as to how people are using the 
javapackager (see Victor's question below).

So we'd love to hear how you and others are using it, and for what kind 
of applications.
