The checkbox is provided by the function "writeJavaSelector()" in the 
"download.js" script file. For adding/deleting the "-wJRE" part to/from 
the URL, the "updateHREFs()" function is called.

The root cause is that in the function "updateHREFs()" the new 
"MIRROR_SOURCEFORGE_URL" variable is not used. Only MirrorBrain or 
Bouncer is recognized.

No bundled JRE files anymore in AOO --> no need to switch URLs.

So, because of this I wouldn't change it as it's not needed anymore in 
the future.

But the first thing is to get rid of all the Bouncer stuff in the script 
files. When we have decided not to go back to this mirror system, then 
we should cleanup the JS logic to get rid of some complexity.
