not a very important application, and there may be some workarounds,
but with openjdk7 Minecraft [1] fails to load the correct bundled
libraries on 64bit. From the exception, it appears that it actually
tries to load the 32bit libs, but it fails. Again, this is only for
the bundled lwjgl libraries. Just a small point for keeping openjdk6,
for the moment.
