While it technically is not a duplicate, it more or less is just two
packages combined into one. I wouldn't add it and would instead
coordinate with the jre/jdk maintainer so that those packages can be
kept up to date. Alternately, apply to be a TU and keep the packages
up to date yourself, if he's willing to orphan them for you.
