As far as I understood it a global repo enables hidden dependencies, but
we can go around this by just populating the repo with broken symlinks.
They don't work unless the package is actually installed and as such we
don't have broken depencies. Cleaning every java package away and
starting from stratch is any way something we developers should do when
committing new packages.

If I gave you a penny everytime upstream has good documentation on their
dependencies, you wouldn't get too many.
