It's true that it's based on JDK 7, but that doesn't mean we cannot use
rebase. The advantage of using rebase is that we would have the BSD
changes in a few (or one) changeset. The drawback might be that a
particular change in the BSD changeset always fails to merge on a rebase
(I had that once with GIT).
