While we're on the subject of respinning RC2, JDT has a critical bug
that prevents any project with multiple output folders (Maven, Gradle)
from running any class (be it main or test) from the IDE, with Java 9. A simple fix was committed yesterday in master, I strongly believe this
should be backported to Oxygen.1a, given that, most likely, all new greenfield
Java 9 projects will use a build tool affected by that bug.

While the "practical me" would say "Yes, if JDT team feels
comfortable with that", I'm leaning towards -1 for this one because it practically means treating internals as API thus encouraging people to use them directly instead of working close with projects they depend on to make APIs stronger and more feature full. I would +1 a case where the method is bringed back in Oxygen only for the sake of preserving some compatibility.
