sun-java6-bin Java package should include Firefox plugin symlink

I just installed icedtea6-plugin because Firefox told me that I didn't
have the Java plugin installed.

That plugin didn't work properly.

It turns out I already have the Firefox plugin
at /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-, thanks to having already installed the sun-java6-bin package from Multiverse.

Creating a symlink
from /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun- to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins was all I needed to do to make it work.

It would be great if the sun-java6-bin created this symlink for me.
