Both java virtuals, virtual/jdk-1.7 and virtual/jre-1.7 are keyworded ~amd64. Which is a bit strange, as the binary oracle jdk and jre V1.7 aren't and therefore meet the virtual dependency.

Having them keyworded meant I got stuck with icedtea-1.6 floating around and being used until I realized the problem!

Yeah, icedtea-bin-1.7 hasn't been stabilized yet; which I think kind of blocks the virtual from stabilizing.

Since we're on our way to eventually mask 1.6, I think this will happen in the very near future...

But none of those are bugs for the (keyworded) virtual/jre, they're bugs against the (non keyworded!) dev-java/...jre...
which I think proves my point!
