Hi Francesco,

That's surely true but in Debian we have no better (policy compliant)
clue than to unbundle their blobs into Java libraries with source.
Since the initial question was about JAI I said that this work in this
specific case is done but does not really help and upstream should be
told to seek for alternatives.  I personally can not imaginge that if
the Java source code does not build with OpenJDK 7 the JAR will remain
functional in future JDK releases.

Kind regards
