Carlos, suppose it turns out that we can't be compatible with both 6 and 7. (I hope that's
not the case, but I don't think we know yet.) Are you saying we have to stick with 6? Rather
than do that, we should probably instead have two branches and two builds if we can't have
compatibility with both.

- Gordon

I'd like to go Java 7, but in my case we have products in Java 6 that can't be upgraded right
now. I suppose that many people are in the same situation. So I think compatibility with Java
6 is a must.
