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
and no knowledge on internal VM stuffs (except few very basic GC things),
so please correct me if there's anything wrong :)
