Ok, my bad here. I have been influenced by the suggestion to keep Java 6
as a version we should support for the server, and I wrote that might be
a good idea to use Java 7 to build teh server but keeping Java 6 as a
JVM we can use to run the server.

Considering the dozen errors in ApacheDS with Java 6, I think it's time
to be a bit more drastic here and say we only support Java7 for build
and run.

Sorry for the confusion.
