yes.  I bootstrap using 1.1 from time to time to make sure we haven't
introduced any 1.2 dependencies.  There may be some optional tasks
that don't work on JDK 1.1.

It will be a lot slower than 1.3.

Maybe you should develop with JDK 1.3 and jikes instead (point jikes
to and set includejavaruntime to false in <javac>).

To make sure everything is OK, you could switch to JDK 1.1 and do a
clean build every now and then - your release builds should probably
better be done that way.
