Look at it this way: If it was required in order to develop *all*
languages, then it would be a problem.

However, it is only required for those who desire to use NetBeans
to develop Java. At that point, they have already accepted a requirement
for non-ALv2 dependencies, and so we are not really adding anything
additional (consider the scenario where they would be developing
a completely proprietary language... ).
