A suggestion: Why not set Sun's JDK as the default one?

As far as I experienced, Sun's JDK is the best of all. The GCJ has a lot of
problems and can't support a lot of applications,such as
eclipse,netbeans,jedit,etc. Most of the time, GCJ is two or three times
slower than Sun's JDK. I feel very uncomfortable to always use "sudo
updatealternatives --config java" for every big update. Now even JDK's
source codes are open-sourced, I really can't find any clues that the Sun's
JDK can't be the default. Please consider it seriously. I'm a developer, so
I know how to change it. For those average endusers, they may feel angry to
run java applications much slowly than they have done in windows.
