It's disheartening to see that so many people in the Java community 
have this "if I'm not using it, no-one is" attitude.

MacOS only supports 1.1, and will never see anything newer. The free 
VM's (Kaffe, SableVM, etc) do not support all the 1.4 features, MacOS X 
just got 1.4.1 a couple days ago. OS/2 has 1.3.1, OS/390 has 1.3.1, 
Linux on pSeries (RS/6000) has 1.3.1, Linux on 31 bit zSeries has 1.3.1.

My votes:
+1 on making 1.6 the last release to support 1.1
+1 on making the next release (Ant 2) require 1.2
-1 on making the requirement anything above 1.2
-1 on making 1.5.x the last release to support 1.1
