Ok, but could you say it nicely please? I just came across this info and
brought it on the list for discussion because it'll impact us at some
point. So don't shoot the messenger.

Changing the source/target is often a trivial modification. I'm not
asking for actively updating all the Java packages, but just modifying
the packages a maintainer may come across. Considering the time it takes
to transition to a new Java release this will smooth the transition
process when we get serious about Java 9 post Jessie.
