Thanks for pointing this out. This package has just been adopted by
the Debian Java Packaging team, and a new version has just been
uploaded to debian and maverick [1]. This new version does not depend
on java-runtime. It actually does not depend on any java (which is a
bug). I agree that it should at least depend on: default-jre-headless.

I'll upload the fix for this.

Thanks again.
