Is it time to remove sun-java6?

Hi folks,

A few of us have been discussing the removal of sun-java6. It is non-free, orphaned, buggy (including security bugs), and can generally be replaced by openjdk. There are only three reverse depends left and none of them directly depend on sun-java6 but instead dep on java6-runtime.

There has also been some similar discussions in Ubuntu with some users reporting that some web sites and packages don't work with openjdk but I have not seen a lot of concrete proof.

My personal feeling is that we either need to remove it or fix it up.

Any thoughts?
