Eclipse IDE: Get rid of the "java.awt.List" proposal in "organize imports"

Organize imports does not work for the “List” type out of the box as there is more than one “List” type in Java. Most often, we are only interested in “java.util.List” but not in “java.awt.List”. So, if you too are not programming using the AWT API, you should definitively tell it your Eclipse IDE.

As I always use the “Organize Imports” feature of Eclipse my Eclipse IDE is always configured accordingly (at workspace or at project level).
