i wouldn't be too critical about that decision...

ideally, it would be better to find another way of satisfying that
dependency. if that isn't possible then it's important to ensure that
users are clearly informed about the minimum JDK version. even if there
is a 1.4 library dependency, it's best to use the source switches so
that the rest of the library could be used on 1.3.
