JDK 1.3 will be end-of-lifed by Sun this summer, so I think we should 
ignore it.

Re logging, where I work we use log4j on JDK 1.4. I think that is a 
pretty common scenario, and using vanilla j.u.logging will not integrate 
well with the rest of our apps. If you want to support both you either 
have to use some logger abstraction, and a logger interface is the best 
abstraction I can come up with.

Re minimum JDK: I would like to also bring JDK 1.5 into the picture, but 
maybe that should go into another thread.
