I think it's not so bad to have Java ports in the java directory
considering what PITA it is to build Java (even on a fast machine, it
takes forever and that's only the tip of the ice berg). This way people might
be more aware of the fact that they'll need to go through the linux emu
hoops to get it working... I mean the scripting languages are built
quickly on any reasonably current hardware.

Best regards,
