*  If a Java library has a generic name, the package name should be
prepended with the title java- to help distinguish it from other
libraries. This is not necessary with uniquely named packages (like
JUnit), end-user programs (like Eclipse), or libraries that can be
uniquely described with another prefix (like
jakarta-commons-collections or apache-ant). 

Java package doesn't have to have prefix 'java'. It should have this
prefix if its name is a _generic_ name. If it is a library and has
other prefix that it shouldn't have prefix 'java'.

Gstreamer-java is a library. Gstreamer-java has the word 'java' in
name. This word is placed in the end. I think it doesn't break our
