It's not just the Provides: jre causing the problem. The Sun JDK/JRE
rpms have a Provides: xml-commons-apis. Upgrading the Fedora
xml-commons-apis rpm uninstalls the Sun rpms too.
All the various jvm packages need to have more or less the same provides
or you can't switch them at will.
The problem with Sun packages is they never tried to work with anyone to
make sure their stuff works (for example they added the xml-commons
provides without putting the associated jar in a place our scripts can
find it, so not installing a separate commons implementation will get you
errors at tomcat startup)
