Then how are we maintainers supposed to determine if our packages
require full java, or just java-headless?  "Needs X or audio" is too
vague.  Is there a list of packages and/or classes that are present in
full java but not in java-headless?  Or some kind of explicit set of
guidelines I can use to examine my packages to see which they need?
