Don't tell that me..
I agree with you. I just said that many "DAU"s just don't care about
external dbs and so. like the M$ Access people. Which Base was intended
for from Sun.

And since the internal stuff uses hsqldb which is Java the package
depends on *some* Java. For users which simply want to install -base and
then might wonder why it doesn't work..
