Thanks for following up. This is something that
we need to decide as part of the Release Plan.
I see that people are already saying yes.

My view is that we need more investigation of FOR-765.
We need more people to test with different versions of
Jetty/Apache Tomcat and Java 1.4 version.
So far only me and i might have a bad Jetty config.

I reckon that we should stick with Java 1.4 unless
we really need to use specific features of Java 5.
No need to just cut off part of our audience.

I reckon that many people still have application servers
that only have Java 1.4 and not Java 5.
