I don't think this is a use case we can reasonably support. Even if
there were no symlinks in /usr/share/java it isn't rare to see two
incompatible versions of the same jar there. If such jars are modular
'java --list-modules' would complain too (modules aren't versioned

What would be the benefit of installing modular jars in a common
directory such as /usr/share/java/modules?
