Do not be afraid of drastic decisions: Cobol has a much more massive support 
than Java and there is no support for it in Debian (and few people complain).

Microsoft has a massive support, too and we still pretend our operating system 
is better.

I see no reason why we should use Java just because Sun decreted we should.
