Yes, that's right. It's a usability thing. It's kind of
nice to have start/stop scripts placed in the right places,
use an already installed tomcat instead of installing a
second one, etc.

So we can abandon most of the /usr/ports/java stuff (except
the jdks and some other) ;-)

Ok, but I think you are right: It's not the really worth
the time maintaining a port, that only downloads and
extracts the stuff.
