Please don't let this discussion arise on every incompatibility we have, 
it's getting boring.

1. 2.1.x *is* actually our latest release and not a future 2.2.
2. 2.1.x supports JDK 1.3.
3. We have to care about it as long as 2.1 is maintained - this does not 
stop with the first 2.2 release.

If now the forms block and others are shared between 2.1 and trunk we 
must keep JDK 1.3 compatibility. If we don't want that we must provide a 
2.1 and trunk version of the blocks. But I guess at the moment it is 
easier to get this fixed instead of maintaining a block twice.
