The code has not been committed yet, so unless someone is actually
planning to finish the work for 10.6, I don't think we need to say
anything about it.

The patch that's attached to the issue (DERBY-4272) still applies to
head of trunk, and the code builds. It looks like it changes the
compilation of the tools classes so that they'll only work on Java 5 or
later, though. I tried to change that back to 1.4, but the code
apparently uses some Java 5 methods. It's probably not that much work to
get it to compile for 1.4, but it won't happen until someone volunteers
to scratch that itch.
