If its only 'some wizards', then i would like to know which wizards,

And for Base, who is using that? I dont think it gets the full attention
it deserves, but i did not have a look at it meself...... ;)
i wonder how manu active users Base has.... (someone should start a poll
about it ;)

So, if user does not use wizards and/or Base, the question is if JRE
should be included in the install....
