Just for the record, my goal was to avoid 'moving the goalposts' for
drlvm to integrate with the classlib and run the tests, apps, etc.

If consensus here is that moving to 5.0 (and thereby delaying that goal)
is more desirable then I'm happy to go along with it, though I'm keen to
get the entire end-to-end story working soonest.
