RFE from based on comment from issue 70127 :
have a checkbox in the Add Module Dependency dialog labelled something to the
"Display Excluded Modules" (default unchecked, and disabled if there are no
excluded modules/clusters in the target platform). If checked, modules (and
filter matches) even from modules currently excluded from the target platform
would be shown; if you tried to add a dep on such a module, you would first be
prompted to include that module in the app. (If it was disabled because its
whole cluster was excluded, the cluster would be un-excluded but all modules in
it except the new module would be excluded.)
Please reevaluate - for 5.0u1, future, or leave TBD.
I'm not working on APISupport anymore. Reassigning to owner of the component, so
the issue is not 'forgotten' forever.
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201302222300* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)

Log: #70258: To "Add Module Dependency" dialog is now added checkbox "Show Excluded Modules", which is disabled if there are no excluded modules from target platform or module is standalone, and if checked, modules excluded from target platform are shown and when any of these excluded modules is added to actual module, this or these excluded modules are then added to target platform. About adding excluded modules to target platform is user notified by confirmation dialog. If this action is not confirmed by the user, excluded module(s) is neither added to actual module, nor to target platform. In this commit is omitted adding modules from clusters excluded from target platform.
