Make environment variable mutation work on Java9+

Mutating the environment requires reflection on the

java.util package, so we need to open that package

up to Gradle. Since Gradle is not modularized, this

means opening it up to the whole classpath. This is

less than desirable, but the only way to restore the

behavior we had on Java 8 and below.

We should start limiting access to environment variables

going forward so users don't depend on arbitrary values.

However, this change allows us to unblock users who are

currently either not using Java 9 or running Gradle in

no-daemon mode, both of which are terrible solutions.
