In java/openjdk8 FreeBSD added a custom WatchService implementation based on


Since openjdk17 is another LTS release, would it be possible to add this to the
FreeBSD openjdk17 port as well?

My use case is sbt (scala builder), while it officially recommends openjdk8
(for now), it works fine with openjdk17 (my app uses some 17 functionality and
