I have no really looked into FastDate, but in the UnicodeEscaper we 
explicitly rely on the fact the the JDK fails for this UPlus notation (this 
is at least how I read the code) i.e. according our Javadoc it should fail 
nevertheless. It is questionable now to adjust Javadoc, I'd rather opt for 
JDK-independent behavior.

With Java 7 released this month I'd better be prepared now.
