Bundling is the worst thing possible and in most cases it should be
avoided.  First we shoud try to use default (which usually is latest)
version avaliable in Fedora, creating patch if necessary and sending it
upstream.  If it is impractical to port to latest version then creating
compat package is acceptable as alternative solution.  Current Java
packaging state it very easy (maybe even too easy) to create such compat
