So far it seems it hasn't been missed by anybody.

If you know how to do it with exec then you can use the nested <arg> of
the <javadoc> task instead.

I must admit I haven't even looked at the javaodc changes for modules
myself at all. Had a quick look right now.

What do you think would be a good set of args to support?

--expand-requires => attribute with values transitive/all
--limit-modules => nested element
--module => nested element
--module-path => nested path element
--module-source-path => nested path element
--show-module-contents => attribute with api/all

Do we need --add-modules and --upgrade-module-path at all? Even any of
the "extended options"?
