I would suggest breaking jdk up into jdk-vm and jdk-classes Since kore is
still in the early stages many people will want to run kaffe with the jdk
classes. then kaffe can depend on kore|jdk-classes and recommend biss-awt.

Also it would be nice to have a jre package, but i'm not sure the linux port
has it separated and i'm not sure we can break apart the jdk, either legally
or practically.

count me in, i've been meaning to package this stuff for a while

quite possibly. Though i can't see how they could object to our naming their
own software java, we should be careful when we start talking about kaffe et.
