AFAIU, IBM product line got moved to JDK1.4 sometime in 1Q this year, 
which means that people who started development / deployment last year, 
will use some IBM products with JDK1.3. It will take them another year 
or so to upgrade.

BEA went with JDK1.4 sometime last year, IIRC, with the release of 
WebLogic 8. I bet there are still number of 6.x or 7.x deployments out 

To conclude, it's too early to drop JDK1.3 support in 2.1.6. And if we 
won't continue 2.1.x line, 2.2 also might be too early for dropping 
JDK1.3 support.

PS I've not heard news about SVN move. Shall we start a branch or wait 
some more for SVN?
