    yes.  the Automatic-Module-Name is like a qualified jar name.  All of the 
packages in the jena-db project will be visible with Automatic-Module-Name: 
org.apache.jena.db.  You would not want to split the components of 
`org.apache.jena.dboe` into separate modules, so it makes sense to unify them.  
It generally seems to be coherent to align the module name with a top level 
package name when there is one package tree per project.  It might be advisable 
to make a separate jar configuration for `org.apache.jena.tbd2` that has a 
matching module name (if granularity is a requirement).
