Bug#388063: java-gcj-compat-plugin: What relation with gcjwebplugin??

I am sorry to reply. Please note that packet descriptions must be understood by users, not only by experts.

So I think more information should be written in the description. People do not know internals of packets. How can one know if it's java-gcj-compat-plugin or gcjwebplugin that he must install?!

In fact, I do not still understand... I do not have gcjwebplugin installed. Still, with java-gcj-compat-plugin installed, I can see applets. So what's the point with gcjwebplugin in the description of java-gcj-compat-plugin??
