I know this is a problem with building third party libraries, and I'm not happy
with it either.

But we cannot just switch on target= and source= things without breaking so many
build files out there it wouldnt be funny.

So this leaves us two other options
1. select a fixed language version (say java1.4), which is the default unless
something else is asked for.

2. add a back door property like ant._internal.javac.source which can be set to
a source to fix those build files that dont otherwise build on java1.5
