I think the combination of JDK6 Developer Preview and Leopard has screwed up my

Presumably you can go into the package bom and remove the files, but is
that going to screw up the sym links? Is there One True Way to swap
everything to 1.5 from the command line?

% rm ~/Library/Caches/Java/ % sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0 % sudo rm /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6

That's it. You'll have 1.5 as the default again. If you have a folder named 'Java SE 6' in /Applications/Utilities/Java, delete that too.
