jmod and jlink support


Has there been discussion or a bug filed regarding adding tasks to support jmod and jlink? Now that there is no longer a separate JRE and the new method of distributing standalone Java applications requires jlink, this seems increasingly important.

I’ve written tasks (and corresponding tests and documentation) for both of them, for my own personal use, but I didn’t want to make a pull request without knowing if this has been addressed already.

I wasn’t sure whether the code is required to be Java 8 compatible. At the very least, I need to use the java.util.spi.ToolProvider class to access jmod and jlink functionality, but if Java 8 compatibility is necessary, I can always do it with reflection.
