I'm concerned about this issue too and have been looking into ways to
automate the testing to make sure that we're not using any JDK1.3+ API
parts. Do you have any good ideas? Brett mentioned clirr and jdiff so
I'll look into those later, jdiff already has a Maven 2 report and it
shouldn't be hard to make a similar clirr report. Although these are
both manual tests and I'd like to be able to automate this.
