Hi Eric,

I indeed built the distributions with JDK 1.3 to ensure full 
compatibility. (It would also be possible to run the build on JDK 1.4 
and set the maven.compiler.executable property to point to a JDK 1.3 
javac, but then the manifest file will have an incorrect version number; 
at least if no additional steps are performed.)

Also if 1.3 is our minimum required JDK version, I wanted to make sure 
that building on this JDK is possible without major problems.
