Subject Re: supported jre version [was Re: Propose a new commons-uri package]

Good point.  In general, the examples should also baseline jdk1.2.  If 
there is a specific reason for using a 1.3 or 1.4 feature in some case, 
than that would be OK as long as its clearly stated.  

We would have to deal with that on a compilation level somehow as well.
