To answer my own question, Commons Configuration 1.7-SNAPSHOT is using  
Commons VFS 2.0-SNAPSHOT as an optional dependency. Configuration has  
a minimum JDK of 1.3. Although it is an optional runtime dependency,  
some of the public classes are needed at compile time. This has not  
been a problem so far and would be OK provided this continued to work  
after the change. I don't believe it would be a problem to add the  
requirement for JDK 5 to the use of this feature in Commons
