Where the Bleep is Java 1.6 on OS X 10.5 Leopard?

Well boys and girls, I have been too busy with work to notice that Apple has finally released Java 1.6 for OS X. But only for 64 bit processers, if you don't have one of those in your system, you are out of luck. But if you do, just run System Update and you should get the update. But after installation, when you drop to command line and run:
java -version
It still says version 1.5. Where the bleep is Java 1.6? You may ask. Well it located here: /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.Framework/Versions/1.6/commands Just make symbolic links to the executables you wish to use.
