Hi Stephen!

Thanks for your review.

Ok, I'll clean it up if I create the 1.0 jar.

I've checked "collections", "httpclient", "net", "transaction" and 
"configuration". Only "collections" provide such a "service".
Every major IDE is able to handle those files, and even text editors 
(other than notepad) on windows are able to view such files.

However, if we would like to start having this now I am willing to do 
so, what do other developers say?
If we do so, I would like to see some support for this in maven as I use 
maven for distribution.

Sure, but e.g. commons-net 1.4.0 was built with 1.4 too (+target 1.4), 
and thus I cant use the 1.3 compiler as the build will fail if I do so.
As far as I know the next NET version will be able to use target 1.3 
again, then I'll revert to use a java 1.3 compiler with maven too.
Anyway, VFS uses target=1.3 and I use the jdk 1.3 libraries during 
development - so if your setup is correct (xml apis, java crypto, ...) 
it should work.
