Lang [1]. The build is configured in a way, that the resulting jar will also work on Java
7 and 8. Since module-info is a Java 9 feature, the build will only work on Java 9.

Feels like a change that would warrant a major version change, but that would have us maintaining
another major version branch. 

It would be interesting if we could somehow put that file in place as part of the build such
that Lang 3 and Lang 4 gets built off the same codebase except that Lang 4 gets
placed up-front in the build process. But, I admit, that may be overly complex, and we might
want to contribute those mechanics back to maven somehow.
