a) This is "class format"...  AFAIK, you can use generics for
development, but compile with -target=1.2 or something like it, no?

b) If I'm wrong in a), then what if you wanted additional branches of
harmony: j2se1.4, j2me (classformat1.2)?  Then using the proposed tool
would be IMO preferable to using completely distinct svn branches for these.
