That is the or -javaagent case.

The other case is where a tool attaches to a running VM and starts the 
JMX agent or loads a java agent. If the modules aren't loaded then it 
trigger the creation of a relative configuration and a child layer with 
the modules that are needed. It's not exposed in the API so just think 
of it as limited support for dynamic augmentation of platform modules.

It's definitely something to come back in the future.
