I'd like hear back from projects before we make this call.
I think our options are:
1. Only ship with openjdk7 and expect all projects to migrate to 
openjdk7. This would be my preference if possible, as we will be able to 
save disk space, which we can use for including new applications.

2. Ship with openjdk6 and 7, and have applications select which version 
they are using in their startup script. This will probably require all 
java applications to update their startup script to select the java 
version they require during initialisation.
