What about javadoc ? With the new module options more so for
the tool than the doclet. Can we have a javadocTask ?

> This is a test-only change, which updates the ToolBox test library

> set of classes in a new named package. Although this does increase the 
> amount of overhead in the test description header, it also allows us

> more practical to extend the set of supported ToolBox tasks, such as 
> for jmod, jlink etc, so that only tests that would want to use such 
> tasks would incur any need to build the tasks.
> The update is primarily for javac tests,  but also includes changes 
> for tests for jshell and sjavac which also use the ToolBox test library.
> There is no significant change to the functionality of any tests. The 
> build dependencies have been verified by running each test separately 
> within jtreg, using a clean JTwork/classes directory for each test.
