Please provide a virtual package that encodes the version of the ABI

Or otherwise give such packages a way to depend against the right
version of gcj/gij/...
See for example bug #609657 for a package that would greatly benefit
the package is there and it is called libgcj-bc. See dh_nativejava how to build
binary code for jar files. As long as packages are built against libgcj-bc,
there is no need to depend against the "right" version of gcj/gij.
If you think the current setup is not working, please provide a reduced test
case which shows the need of what you do propose.
