Agreed. Most (all?) of this stuff came from JPackage and there's
point in breaking compatibility/naming.
Also, perl and python components are released from a centralised
source, while java components aren't. The perl- prefix works because
it's effectively a cpan- prefix
Other languages like C which do not have a centralized source also do
not use a common prefix. So java is consistent
