And we've said that we want the really core public APIs to be lighter grey and the most internal ones be a darker grey. To me, that means that java.lang should probably be a smidge lighter than java.util. And sun.* be darker than com.sun. We may want to set the colors for these packages, and some other popular ones, like java.io, java.nio ourselves. Or simply have one lighter grey for java.*, one a little bit darker for com.sun.* and jdk.*, and a dark one for sun.*. None with any other hint of color in them (equal amounts of R, G and B).

So, in other words, these simple semantics:
1. Is it a standard public Java JDK API -> light grey.
2. Is it a public non-standard Java JDK API -> medium grey.
3. Is it an internal Java JDK API -> dark grey.
