No symlinks for javaws?

first I also used java-package 0.24 to create my packages. But I have not
only j2sdk1.4 but also j2re1.5, and java-package seems to create a javaws
alternative for 1.5 but *not* for 1.4 (checked in
/usr/share/java-package/*/install). On top, it might be I created the
alternative for 1.4 myself *g*
Sounds anyway like a (small) bug in java-package to me.
