Well, correctly packaged jars (as oposed to what one can
download from sun) are certainly a « value-add » in my book
(I spend so much time organising  the jars I downloded, good
rpms would have been a breeze). Wouldn't this be sufficient
for sun lawyers (and if not, can't they do some decent
packaging for a change ?)
