JPackage is special because of the way we let them do most of the work
building the packages and we are using their packaging standards which
make java portable (between distros) and pluggable (between java
stacks).  As long as we use their framework for making java packages we
need to figure out how to make things work with that framework.

The question is how does naming impact that framework?  Are those areas
important to us?  Are there already other things impacting those areas
so naming won't affect things one way or the other?
