Good idea! We've been edging around what we can do with jsr14 for a 
while now. That
solution was only ever intended to be temporary, maybe now is the time 
to fully step
up to 5.0.
Altering the build system to create 5.0 level classes is a one liner 
AFAICS, and will allow
us to enable some of the code we have that currently is lying dormant 
(such as the 5.0
version of itc's rmi, and we can remove rmi2.1.4).

I think this move is probably overdue - it'd be great to step the 
classlib and our VMs up
to 5.0, feels like we're moving closer to our target!
