As I mentioned before, we have already done that.  For some reason,
Cocoon complained about invalid clss files and such.

Can you confirm if my changes work on JDK 1.3?  I think it is the
cleanest solution and allows people with JDK 1.3 to build the library
and it will still work with JDK 1.4.

Cocoon is the problem application for this package, which is why I
wanted you guys to verify it.
