deduplicating jquery/




Hello,

Quite a few packages have jquery/ embedded in documentation generated by
javadoc. This yields to

«
libfoo-java shares 1.2 MB of similar files with package
liblizzie-java-doc, please investigate whether it is possible to reduce
the duplication.
»

e.g. most of the libbrlapi-java size comes from it, and
liblucene3-java-doc contains a couple dozens copies.

Could openjdk perhaps build a package that would ship jquery/ in a known
place, and packages would just depend on it and the generated jquery/
directory be replaced with a symlink to the known place?
