I would say 1.5.x so long as x is not frozen.  IOW, if there
are critical bugs that mandate a release through the 1.5 branch
to work in environments that do not have the ability to run JDK
1.2, then we should be open to that.

Should we even consider -target=1.1 or does the newer
.class format help in any way?

The most stable version of JDK 1.2 that the vendor provides.

Is adding more cruft to mark the old cruft as
obsolete an option? ;-)
