From what I understood of Glenn's mail, I thought he was talking about
the "module" attribute which is a name, unlike the modulepath, which as
you rightly note is a "path". As far as I understand of the java command
line, the -m option which specifies the module[/mainclassname] should be
taken literally without any file separator conversions. So before we
(Ant) pass off that module name to java command, IMO, we shouldn't do
the conversion.
