Thank you, Nick and Andi.

>> Can we limit this to X classes per package or X static imports?

I have a preference to avoid wildcards altogether.  In the ooxml classes, it makes it easier
to confirm that I'm triggering the classes that we need downstream in ooxml-schemas for Tika.

I defer, though, to you and the other devs on this item.

This is something I'd like to  change.
Can we limit this to X classes per package or X static imports?

For common_sl, I've used a setting of 3 full imports, and for a higher number wildcards will
be used.
The only ambiguity which comes up regularly is java.util/awt.List

It's ok if we decide differently, there's a shortcut for it in Eclipse ... before I merge
the branch.
