It seems the current convention is to put the JAVA packages
under /usr/lib/jvm/(java|jre)-<majversion>-<vendor>-<majminversion> with
certain packages going to /usr/lib/jvm-exports/
and /usr/lib/jvm-private/

Who's convention is this, anyway? And what's it called? It seems Fedora
and jpackage both honor this convention (and alternatives uses it. Or
maybe it's the other way around ... this convention uses was designed
around alternatives).

Just my guesses.
