The attached patch (untested) does this.
Other ideas are to also turn the '$' into a '-' or to only allow the .so
for a complete package (until now I didn't even know you could also do
it on the class level).

But whatever we decide we should at least document it somewhere. I
looked but couldn't find this in the gcj manual. Is it documented
somewhere else?
