I think this is old wording which I unfortunately didn't improve - maybe
because I parsed it differently or maybe because I've looked at this stuff
so many times I don't even see it.  Because it just mentioned the revision
number I think that was meant to imply the revision could be >= 13.  If I
originally wrote this I would have written 1.5.13 or greater if I meant
any later version and I would not have included "or Java SDK 1.6".

Trying to use Java 1.7 is very common mistake.  And yes, we need to get
rid of our forks of batik and velocity if at all possible.  There is also
an xerces patch as well but it hasn't been as problematic.
