old question with new status? Sun-Java in Debian non-free?



According to various press releases [1], it seems that Sun is relaxing 
their redistribution license for Java. I know very little about the 
historical releases that the JRE has been kept out of Debian but wasn't 
it because the license was too restrictive?

If so, does this mean that Java is now in "the same boat" as Macromedia 
Flash Player?

If so, what can I do to take the initiative to package it up for Debian 
non-free?

I apologize in advance if this brings up an old flame war...
