I think that as a software product that is known for its innovative 
nature it is *very* important in the interest of Cocoon to refuse being 
impaired by the immobility of bureaucracratic organisations. We are 
having a small crisis on our hands ATM regarding our persistent store 
component and if I was reading Pier correctly he was willing to dedicate 
some time towards a solution to this problem.

One of the main attractions of the jdk 1.4 is its NIO package, and it's 
supposed to be a major improvement in Javas IO performance. With 1.4 
being available for - what more than two years? - and 1.5 already on the 
horizon it is IMHO the right time to upgrade.

+1 for 1.4
