To be more precise, I am trying to have a single jar file which will
be seen as modular on Java 9 and as a regular jar in older JVMs,
with module-info.class ignored.

Quoting from [1]:

   A modular JAR file can be used as a module, in which case its
   module-info.class file is taken to contain the module’s
   declaration. It can, alternatively, be placed on the ordinary class
   path, in which case its module-info.class file is ignored. Modular JAR
   files allow the maintainer of a library to ship a single artifact that
   works both as a module, on Java SE 9 and later, and as a regular JAR
   file on the class path, on all releases. We expect that
   implementations of Java SE 9 which include a jar tool will enhance
   that tool to make it easy to create modular JAR files.

This is the problem I am struggling with.
