Do we need platform independent images?

Hi, The Java Access Bridge jars have been in 7u since 7u6. There is a
problem in that the 32 bit images can't be used without modification.
This is because one of the jars is platform independent. There is
access-bridge.jar for 32 bit Java on a 32 bit OS and
access-bridge-32.jar on 32 bit Java on a 64 bit OS. For the image to be
usable one of those has to be deleted from the lib\ext of the image,
depending on the OS. Would it made sense to create two more images, one
for 32 bit Java on a 32 bit OS and one for 32 bit Java on a 64 bit OS.
Note that the bridge is only used on Windows. The Java Access Bridge
provides access to Java applications from screen readers and screen
magnifiers used by those who are blind or who have low vision.
