Ben Speakmon commented on EMAIL-62:
-----------------------------------

I'm with Dion 100% on meeting the needs of users, but as I said on the list, I consider the
benefits of using 1.4 -- allowing us to use the latest javamail/activation versions, much
better charset support, etc. -- outweigh the new dependencies. It's better than asking users
to stick with the known bugs of javamail 1.3.1 and being forced to reimplement the charset
code in 1.3 when the majority of people using it are on at least 1.4.

It's not my project, though, and if 1.4 is unacceptable for some other reason, we'll think
of something clever. As Piero says, the important thing is to get fixes out for what's not
working.
