java.awt.List - the Bane of IDE AutoCompletion

When I’m cruising in Eclipse, nothing disrupts flow like having to fix stupid import problems. FOr example, I type in a reference to List and try to autocorrect it:

autocompleting List

Oh! I wanted the standard collection type, not the AWT specific list! Here, Eclipse, let me tell you I need the the standard list type another five million times while I autocomplete my 56th for loop over a collection.

But I’m not bitter.

Is there some way to fix this, short of hacking my JDK to remove AWT, since I never use it? This is almost as bad as java.math.BigDecimal and when working under WSAD.
