I'm using the upstream package names for now; maybe I should rename
them to "ice-java" and "ice-java-runtime" or something like that.
Unfortunately, these two packages can't be built from the same SRPM,
because the runtime is noarch (only jar files) while the development
stuff contains binaries (a translator written in C++ to convert ice
files into Java source).

Or is it possible to use the same SRPM to generate both arch and
noarch packages simultaneously? If so, that would make my life simpler

I'll try to put up some packages for review in the next day or two.
