Yes, at some point we should probably document that as the preferred
setup. But I also think we should continue to maintain the ability to
build with previous JDKs until 1.6 is available on most of the
platforms of interest outside of the Sun releases, like OS X, HP-UX,
AIX, FreeBSD, zOS, etc.

I also think that there needs to be some testing of an all-1.6 build.
I haven't done any sort of comprehensive testing yet.

Agreed. Any suggested wording? Otherwise I'll come up with something.
