I got repoman telling me I didn't have any Java installed on my OSX 
system.  I took a look into the macos/virtuals file and 
macos/10.4/package.provided file and figured there seems to be an 

package provided says:


while virtuals says:

virtual/jdk            dev-java/sun-j2sdk

To 'fix' this issue, I altered virtuals like this:

  virtual/jre            dev-java/sun-jre-bin

note that the virual/jre seems to be fine and in line with package.provided.

are there any objections to this change?  should it be the other way 
around (the edit in package.provided)?  ... or can I just check it in?
