There are already many free packages that provide a binary (or symlink
to a binary) named java. There is one package named 'free-java-sdk'
which uses the name java, as well as the previously mentioned virtual
packages which we already have. It seems reasonable to continue to use
the word java in the virtual packages which provide binaries named java.
