Bug#551294: fop: needlessly depends on -jre instead of -jre-headless

Package: fop
Version: 1:0.95.dfsg-5
Severity: wishlist

I have a server with no graphical interface whatsoever.  On this server,
some users use asciidoc to build webpages and PDFs; hence, fop is
installed.  This is not a problem, since by default fop runs headless.
However, fop depends on openjdk-6-jre | java2-runtime.  The former
(which is the runtime I'm using) depends on libaccess-bridge-java-jni,
which pulls in the entirety of GTK, along with all its dependencies.

Obviously, this is a complete waste of disk space (and a good
opportunity for additional security bugs).  Since by default fop runs
headless, please depend on openjdk-6-jre-headless and recommend or
suggest openjdk-6-jre.
