As long as beecrypt-java is a subpkg, I prefer "beecrypt-java"

OTOH, if standalone package, I would prefer "java-beecrypt", like, say, 
today too.

My rationale is to try to optimize the primary key retrieve on package 
file names, so
that "similar" group together when eyeballing, say, "ls -al" lists.

All is in the eye of the beholder of course, ymmv, everyone's does.

And I think "beecrypt-java-jni" waiting for a java package to magically 
is rather effete, and confuses rpm package names with file names 

And no matter what, popt as subpkg of rpm confuses everyone.

But that's just me.
