Up until 8, things where working fine, then we got to do other things,
I don't remember even when it was the last time I built this thing. I
think some care should be taken for the modules. I don't see Cacio
being merged in the JDK anytime since somebody needs to actively
maintain this code.

It should work on the project and make sure it evolves, something I've
not been very good at doing apparently ;) However the new maintainer
should have a verifiable history of contributions (either on Cacio or
at least OpenJDK).
