OK, and despite what I said below I couldn't resist triaging through
JIRA a bit right now and noticing the ~500 new warnings in my IDE
after switching to JDK 1.5 :-)

I will fix a couple of minor JIRA issues and then branch as planned. I
also plan to address some of the major type safety and other warnings
showing up with 1.5. Finally, I plan to eliminate the ArrayStack
dependency (from o.a.c.collections) which has been somewhat painful
over the years ( DIGESTER-115 [1], for example ).
