I know. I wasnt expecting any pick up there. Not until Jikes adds the 
support for parsing them, then we could say
"ant runs on any platform, but you need jikes or javac 1.5+ to compile", 
rely on the backported annotation support, etc, etc,

I'm using 1.5 in only one (personal) project, and not gone near 
annotations yet. I see tomcat has gone 1.5+ only, and EJB3 is going the 
same way, but perhaps they are special cases.

We should start by making sure <apt> works :)
