NOTES:

<smeghead> icedtea is openjdk with the non-GPL-compatible parts replaced, and openjdk is sun's jdk with bits relicensed

<smeghead> for most purposes you shouldn't notice any difference between sun, openjdk, and icedtea

<smeghead> however, icedtea offers some alternatives to hotspot which can give worse or better performance
