This seems like an acceptable solution. We code for Java 1.2, but have an
ant target that changes the imports to produce a 1.1 compatable version with
Suns collections.jar. (ie. if you have version 1.2 of Java or later then you
don't need collections.jar)

No, we make the user install collections.jar.  They have gone through
the trouble to find commons-lang, finding collections.jar from sun is
not that much harder :)
