I'm a little confused; can you expand?  I know that OpenOffice uses
Java in several different ways, and I'm getting them confused; the
run-time need for Sun's JDK (e.g., in the help system?) is dropped in
the Debian packages already, correct?  Is the Java binding something
beyond that?

In any case, is there any chance of porting their work in the Debian
packages so that OpenOffice can be part of the next release?

Eager to use OpenOffice,
