Summary: Review Request: freecol - The FreeCol multi-player strategy game

Ok, looks pretty good to me, just one non-cosmetic issue remains:

As java-1.7.0-icedtea is required, shouldn't the startup script try to enforce
that (or another Java >= 1.7 implementation)?  Currently it picks the system
default which is set by alternatives and may point to an incompatible JRE.  No
good ideas how to do that though, but maybe hardwiring to /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.7.0
instead of letting that happen would be an improvement, WDYT?

Then, a couple of cosmetic notes:

freecol.desktop still has the Encoding key (dunno if it was intentionally left).

Comment in the .desktop could be improved, eg. simply
"Comment=Open Source version of Colonization" or "Comment=Colonize America".

The startup script still references wstx, which will result in some error
spewage on the console.  Perhaps remove now and add back when/if the dependency
on wstx is added back?

GPL+ seems correct, although the manual (doc/FreeCol.tex) is GPLv2+.  I suppose
upstream's intention is GPLv2+ for the whole shebang, maybe notify them?
