We can't do that, because our own upstream (the OpenJDK packager) alredy
decided on it. To change it you're going to have to start a bug
report/feature request on our own packages.

If you can change _his_ mind, then we can talk about implementing that in
the AUR as well.

Yes, I get that you're eager to get whatever parties out of there ASAP, and
sort it out later. Unfortunately, that's not how it's going to play out and
this discussion so far has prevented the proper way from happening as well,
as I was already pointed out some time ago.

Therefore, I'm taking this and my suggestions back directly to the
respective maintainers, and only if they want to continue it here, we will.
