You are correct, sir.  It won't compile but it will run against the 
older jar, as long as the new functionalities are not called.  I forget 
that not everyone wants to build ant :-).

The existing tests can be run successfully if you ignore the errors. 
You see, Antoine, your tests have already proven their value!

I will revise this documentation, and also change the code to output a 
more meaningful error message if anyone tries to use the new features 
with an older jar.
