So what you're packaging exactly is the Java version of that SDK, which
installs JAR files named SevenZip. I suggest calling the package something
with Java in it. Normally we base our names on the tarball name, i.e.
java-lzma or lzma-java. Another possibility would be java-SevenZip or
SevenZip-java (based on the JAR name), but I don't like this because it's
mixed case and because it refers to the 7-Zip program whereas the JAR is
just the LZMA SDK, it does not cover all the functionality of 7-Zip (I
think it doesn't even handle .7z archives).
