There are still some parts missing in the free version, because SUN
was unable to get all of it relicenced.  The Icetea project is working
on replacing these with pieces from Classpath, and I hope the result
will be workable soon.  But until that happen, the free SUN Java is
foilware and thus not in unstable. :)
