You're absolutely right!  I wasn't thinking about it when I took that
example.  This is really a typical case (j2se 1.4) where using svn
branches is the right solution.

But, for j2me1.5, java for credit cards 1.5 and j2se1.6 (maybe, if they
don't redesign the Java syntax, etc.), I think that a tool along the
lines I was proposing would be best.
