Re: [Rd] Canonical package directory name for JAR files?

We don't "mandate" a given JDK (including the compiler, javac), but we do supply the JRE. We do require that the java compiler be able to produce code that the JRE accepts (we test-run javac with a variety of common version-type flags to try to find one that works with our JRE).

It is source:pkg/java/{src,prebuiltjars,Makevars} -> binary:pkg/jars, roughly parallel with source:pkg/src -> binary:pkg/libs.
