1. at jpackage if a jpp-compatible jvm is installed the
/usr/lib/jvm/java symlink exists (and handled by alternative). We also
provide lots of symlinks like /usr/lib/jvm/java-sun,
/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.4.2 and so on. This symlink can always be used as
the ultimate fallback

2. We have a system-wide /etc/java/java.conf rcfile where the user can
specify his prefered jvm (with JAVA_HOME)

We used to put java binaries in /usr/bin but it proved too messy :
a. gcj already did it in an incompatible way (ie it randomly stomped on
our links)
b. when you start allowing parallel install of multiple jvms - as is
often necessary in the real world(tm) - it gets really messy. Sure one
can use alternatives for this but even getting a single directory
symlink to work all right proved difficult (have to handle all the
install/removal scenarii).

Most java packages are happier with JAVA_HOME anyway - if you give them
java executables in the path they'll initiate real ugly shell euristics
to try to guess the actual JAVA_HOME value.
