We going to attempt to bring in the module system in jdk-9+111. The 
jdk9/dev -> master integration for jdk-9+110 has already happened so 
bumping the class version to 53.0 will go in after the module system. It 
does mean the module-info.class will be at 52.0 for a short time but I 
think we can live with that.
