Hm, never had the idea this is needed. I can see that new projects want a pure modules setting,
for existing code (using older artifacts) that is less of an requirement. Hm, let's hope people
who want modules versions will contribute.

But the hint with automatic modules (file name based) is a good one (as long as they do not
require imports?)

Not necessarily. So long as you specify what the module name would be,
people can in theory use them via the "automatic module" feature. This
may require some changes to maven to map artifacts to modules.
