Since you contributed a non-Java-1.5 patch for HADOOP-259, let's go 
ahead and release 0.3 without a Java 1.5 requirement, then start 
permitting Java 1.5 in changes for 0.4.  That way we give folks a bit 
more notice and a bit more time to object.  I doubt we'll hear many 
objections, but I don't want to surprise folks too much with this kind 
of change.

Does this sound like a reasonable plan?
