But otherwise the simply can't use josm! I can't understand why we
don't accept the fact that josm simply doesn't work with some VMs, and
so can't depend on a general VM, but only on those that make it work
(and, in my opinion, only sun-java* do).

Pretending to use a package and wanting not to install its dependencies
is a bit too ambitious, I think! And we cannot do anything against
the fact that josm doesn't work with gij-4.3. ;-)

I don't know when Sun's JVM will be free and packaged in main, but I
don't think is would be that incredible waste of time moving josm to
contrib until it happens so.

Well, I really hope it to be changed, because right now our
dependencies are insufficient for josm.
