Hmm, is there any way to sub-package java stuff, the rhug group seems to have
gotten pretty far with quite a lot of packages (they've hit tarroon),
plus it is still possible to compile stuff with gcj/jikes/etc. 

Sadly java distribution is problematic, but if we can put things into
Fedora Extras or JPackage which require a bit more user interaction
(dowloading binaries after clickthrough) it might be useful/beneficial
to the end user.
