Back when we wrote the initial Java packaging guidelines, we said
packagers *should* include GCJ AOT bits. Should we remove this

Also, GCJ is still in the base install set for Fedora. Should we remove
this and make OpenJDK a default?
This is a bit premature. We still don't have the OpenJDK JIT for PPC and
ARM arches. We're working hard on it but it's not ready yet for prime-time.
Without the JIT, OpenJDK is crushingly slow on these arches.
Having said that, there's no reason not to make OpenJDK the default on the
arches where it performs well: x86 and 8x6_64 at the monent.
