+ Java 7 has been throughly superseded and deprecated by Java 8 at this
+ point in time. If you really need it, feel free to use it as I will -
+ for the time being - continue to support the package. At least try to
+ use either icedtea8 or openjdk8, though.
+ If you just want a Java JRE or JDK, this is *NOT* what you want.
+ If you're not 100% sure you want this, you most likely want
+ dev-lang/icedtea8 or dev-lang/openjdk8 (mind their bootstrap options!).
