Oh, you don't seem to know the path from the top of your head! Me
neither. That's the point of jikes-kaffe: relieving you from having to
remember the obscure bootclasses path(s).

Of course this could be combined sensibly with your idea: If everybody
providing a JRE would provide /usr/share/<mumble>/<pkgname>.classpath
we could enhance jikes (or a simple shell wrapper, not necessary named
"jikes") so that "-jre foo" would take the base classes from package

Using *just* alternatives is IMHO not enough as the needs of some
users may differ from the system default.
