The code already uses some 1.5 features, e.g. enum and autoboxing. It
also already uses parameterized types, just not everywhere. I think
it's too late for compile-time compatibility with 1.4.

Regarding raw types, the types are erased at run-time anyway. I think
the only affect on user code would be to generate some compile-time
warnings. I don't think it will stop code working. Anyway, the code
already uses non-raw types, it's just that some raw types have yet to
be converted.
