This is an interesting take on the issue.  I agree that it seems like 
more users are interested in Java EE 5 and less interested in another 
1.4 certified release. I think it might be valuable to rename trunk to 
be 2.0 and deliver what was originally targeted as "1.2" as the first 
milestone along that path.   It seems that this is the best of both 
worlds ... we get the functional improvements of 1.2 out sooner and we 
begin to get traction in the community toward Java EE 5.   +1
