      nice |    0.9.6-1 |      unstable | source, all

nice Depends: kaffe | java-virtual-machine, kaffe | java1-runtime | java2-runtime

The java-virtual-machine virtual package is available in testing on all
architectures. The java[12]-runtime virtual package is available on all
but mips* in testing, and is only available due to orp-classpath on mips*
in unstable.

The cheat that says arch:all packages only need their dependencies satisfied
on i386 was missing in the excuses analysis. It's been added now. :(

No, it's not. If you're feeling misled, it's almost always because you're
forgetting to look at the other ten architectures we support.
