Oh, geez, indeed! I didn't know that! I've inherited 7 from a previous Ubuntu, I guess, and didn't even know that openjdk-8-jre/jdk 
is available in the repo. So I can be on 8 from distros on all my machines after all. :)

openjdk-6-jre/wily-updates,wily-security 6b37-1.13.9-1ubuntu0.15.10.1 amd64
openjdk-7-jre/wily-updates,wily-security,now 7u91-2.6.3-0ubuntu0.15.10.1 amd64 [installed,automatic]
openjdk-8-jre/wily-updates,wily-security 8u66-b17-1 amd64

openjdk-6-jdk/wily-updates,wily-security 6b37-1.13.9-1ubuntu0.15.10.1 amd64
openjdk-7-jdk/wily-updates,wily-security 7u91-2.6.3-0ubuntu0.15.10.1 amd64
openjdk-8-jdk/wily-updates,wily-security 8u66-b17-1 amd64
