I assume there are many more factors in this decision, but have you
considered using the original JSR implementation which is 1.4
compatible?  The packages, class names and JavaDocs are from what I can
tell identical.

Sorry if I am beating dead horse here.  I just know 1.5 is way out of
the question where I work so I am not looking forward to forking away
from the main trunk of the ApacheDS.  Call me selfish... :)
