A group of Debian Java developers met tonight and agreed that
we would not advocate OpenJDK changes for squeeze.

And we agreed that openjdk-6 is what we want to use as default-jre
on all platforms post squeeze. For the reasons you mention
this will be a fairly substantial undertaking (does not
build on mips sparc sparc64 hppa).
We understand that maintaining openjdk-6 is more than packaging,
it involves bug triage and security fixes as well.
We welcome your critical feedback as we continue work on OpenJDK.
