I believe I replied too to this thread, but the reply must have been
lost on some plane between California and Italy...
I agree completely w/ you. Even if _RIGHT_NOW_ in the first
implementation of the code I tried not to include anything 1.1 specific
(probably something _IS_ in the code, but it was involuntary) I think we
should aim for JDK 1.2, expecially now that Sun and Blackdown are both
pretty good shaped under Linux...
If IBM doesn't follow with their VM (wich I believe is ready but not
released), well... that's THEIR problem...
