Removed that. Same error, unfortunately.

I feel like we may be looking at two separate issues here. One appears
to be that the non-platform-specific artifacts are named such that the
JVM attempts to derive an automatic module name from them and can't due
to the structure of the version number. The other issue appears to be
some sort of compiler bug.

There's a new release of the compiler plugin due out soon that I hope
might fix the latter, but I think the former is going to require a
version number format change - it's not possible to get around the fact
that Maven is going to name the jar files a certain way on disk, and
that the JVM doesn't like what it names them.
