The current JDK is not that usable anyway. Slow to hell etc. :(

Why would we want to support Java. Where is commercial Java software 
better than commercial Windows software? Also we have a free implementation
of the Windows API (okay, not all of it) but not of JDK.

Anyway, I don't see how this mixes with the GR. If you want to use software
which is not even in non-free you will have to install it from source/binary
tar.gz anyway. If you are doing this you can as well install the JDK along 
the way.

Summary: This does not add new points to the discussion.
