The biggest break is that anything that imports the enum package is 
hosed. This will affect internal code (say, 2 min in IntelliJ to fix), 
and the java2wsdl generation (testing). It also means that

1. anything that was build against an old version of axis and uses the 
classes in enum.* wont work.
2. any attempt to rebuild existing code that does so will need fixup to 

make no mistake, this will have to be flagged in the "stop, we have 
broken your code" part of the readme
