This offers all the libs available in games:libs at any time and reduces the
need of the links / aggregates.

This is definitively a good idea. I will do it this way afterwards if
there are no objections.

May I dare to ask what's the status here? I think it was not performed yet, and
from the, well, in fact short discussion on the mailinglist I did not see any
objections. But I might have missed them.

Yesterday, I just added smc (Secret Maryo Chronicles) to games:arcade and we
either pull in some more libs (libdevil, libSILLY, libcegui and some more for
it to build) or we have the whole repo built against games:libs (I'm in favour
for that).

games:libs being built against the JAVA repositories, as I think there will
be more games coming with potential Java requirements (I was looking a bit
into Slam Soccer).
The Java remain, as is, built against the openSUSE_xx.x repositories.

However, I'm not quite sure about this. As far as I know Java packaging
makes wrinkles on packagers' foreheads and I would like to hear more
comments on this from games:* maintainers and maybe some Java packagers,
before we build games:libs against Java repos.

For this part I still would like to hear some more discussion. I would like to
add Freecol to games:strategy:turn-based, but this will not work if Java is not
available. Thoughts please?
