Does this an opportunity to have a cleaner Java APIs by getting rid of
all/some of these deprecated APIs ?
  * http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/deprecated-list.html
  * http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/deprecated-list.html
  * http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/api/deprecated-list.html

How far backward compatibility Apache Harmony will go ?
Just 1.5 and later. Or everything from 1.4, or further 1.3, or all
that is "Java 2" (1.2 and later).
Or it will continue to support Java 1.1 as well ?

Many complains about Java runtime is its growing size and some point
out that it is because of keeping many deprecated stuffs.

Let's say 1.5 is a compatibility "upper bound" (at the moment, for
project's scope),
what is the "lower bound" ?


I'm just a normal Java developer, mainly on desktop, with little J2ME
experience,
and no knowledge on internal VM stuffs (except few very basic GC things),
so please correct me if there's anything wrong :)
