[aur-general] Java Dependency and Cross-Compilation Questions

So, my new machine is up and running (and I figured out my previous
packaging issues!)...so I'm updating my jGnash package
(http://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/i686/jgnash/) to the
latest release and there is also currently a bug report on the package
(http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/16665). The bug report correctly
states that jGnash will not run with openjdk6 (jre works just fine),
so what is the current policy for handling that fact?

I know that no other packages depend on jre directly, and the prefered
method is now java-runtime, but doesn't that mean that openjdk6 users
will just have this software silently fail? Also, if you're building
an i386 package on an x86_64 machine, is there an easy way to test the
software to make sure that it's actually working on i386? Thanks in
