not exactly what i meant, sunjdk doesn't split the official package, in
the same way kde in [extra] doesn't. if it's up to me jre and jdk
wouldn't exist, but to those who only need java support for their
browser, they couldn't care less about jdk, so it's better for those to
have a smaller package to download and install, thus the kde-mod

if you compared my package to jre in [community], you'll notice that i
haven't added any extra sources, i just decided to install the rest of
the package.
