What will be w/ generics? Won't they break cack-compat as soon as we add
them (e.g., if we move to accepting parameters as generics - it may break an
application which does not use generics yet). I think that the move to 1.5
needs to include the generics as well, unless we're willing to break
back-compat later on.
