Judging by the example of "ap-php", as well as the various py-* and
p5-* packages, the model we already have is that "foo-bar" is widgetry
for foo that allows using bar.
Thus, java-gnome would be a package that allows using gnome in Java,
whereas gnome-java would be a package that allows using Java in gnome.
(I guess that would be a bonobo-level or ORBit-level wedge to allow
carrying gnome objects over Java RMI?)
So, I think, language first.
