I'd be in favor of updating the jobs. Nobody would build releases using
Java 1.5 either, I guess.

In the case of antlib svn we could simply decide to call it dead or
dormant or whatever (like almost all other antlibs, I guess). Unless I'm
overlooking something, the svn antlib is neither listed on
http://ant.apache.org/antlibs/proper.html nor
http://ant.apache.org/antlibs/sandbox.html - so it doesn't even exist
from out user's point of view.
