Thanks for your work. I'm away on my honeymoon though, and so won't be
able to help out. If, amongst yourslves, you're able to arrive at a
consensus as to the best solution, please NMU as necessary.
While I preffer my soloution to sebastiens his current nmu to delayed
will solve the main bug. Neither soloution is ideal (mine involves a lot
of hardcoding, shauns takes away choice of JRE) but I think the ideal
soloution will have to wait until post lenny.
Long term I think we need a standard tool provided by one of the core
java packages that selects a JRE/JDK based on a set of requirements
(requirements may include things like being based on the sun code,
supporting a certain version of the java standard/classfile format,
being native to the current debian architecture, supporting a gui etc)
using the users preffered JRE if it meets those requirements and a set
of virtual packages to go with them to allow packages to depend on
having a JRE that meets thier requirements).
