Thank you for the feedback James, I'll keep the packages separated then.

This isn't the first time the lack of Maven in Ubuntu main impacts our
choices. I understand the perspective of supporting the security updates
of 100+ dependencies isn't very exciting, but on the other hand I don't
think the Maven dependencies are affected by many vulnerabilities
anyway. Who in the Ubuntu security team would we have to convince to get
Maven in main?
