The javapackager was originally the "javafxpackager", but as it is no 
longer specific to JavaFX it makes more sense to discuss it here. The 
code base is still in the openjfx repo, but it seems better to do 
reviews on this more general list.

I'll let Victor or others chime in about this, but it seems that 
providing some support for --add-exports might be useful.
