Eroticizing a Jane Austen novel is definitely stupid, but I don't think it's anything to get too worked up over. Intelligent people—the kinds of people who enjoy good literature and with whom you want to discuss good literature—aren't going to read idiotic reboots of classics. Or, if they do read them, they're not going to take them very seriously. So I think the integrity of the original remains intact.

If, on the other hand, the publishers announced they were going to stop printing Jane Eyre and make Naughty Jane Eyre the only version available—that would be something to get worked up over.

Well, my opinion, is that one has 'the artistic license'. But for the other side, I'd like to retain the sacredness of it. I think it's pure sacrilege.
