Hi Moritz and all pkg-java members,

I am wondering if it is better to upgrade groovy to the latest version
(2.4.5 as of now) and drop groovy2, and migrate all build-rdeps of old
Groovy 1.x to using a separate groovy-1.8 or groovy-1.9 package if
necessary. In the end that we get rid of groovy and remain a groovy2
package seems odd. Anyway BND, Maven are under the similar transition.
Since GSoC I have been maintaining Gradle in Debian so I am happy and
willing to do the transition.
