Cool!  I am very happy to see free-java-sdk in use.  I've even just
uploaded a new, slightly improved version.  In this shape it can now
go into Sarge (it's already there, but the previous version).

Yeah.  How would one parse build.xml w/o an XML parser? ;-)

I could not add libgnujaxp-java as a Dependency of sablevm, because this
-java package depends on some native pieces (libgnujaxp-jni) that are
not available on one of the platforms SableVM supports in Debian. 
Probably a wishlist bug against jaxp package would be in order.

For *users* of free-java-sdk I added Recommend: libgnujaxp-java,
which will install it automatically when using some of the more
userfriendly package management tools.

But packages still should explicitely build-depend on libgnujaxp-java,
to get proper xml parsing working; the rest is done automatically.

Thanks and cheers,
