Agreed. Those deps are now removed from the examples in which I
previously submitted as a proposed guideline update. (I hope I submitted
it the right way...)

Somehow I managed to not notice the java-devel list until recently so I
think this is the first time I've mentioned the draft here. Please read
and comment on it! The number of changes are growing...

I should move it out of the User:Abo namespace so it doesn't look like a
personal page.
