Ok, I get your point and I'm not going to force it, but I don't agree
people still running 1.5 should be able to compile from sources. I
mean: 1.5 has been dead for a longer while now; the same argument
could be made for java 1.4 or whatever most recent version has been
ported to amigaos... There are 1.6-compatible VMs from all major
vendors. Really -- if you're still using java 1.5 you're a fossil and
should consider switching to 1.6 (if not for anything else, then for
performance reasons).

This said, I'm fine with 1.5 source-level compatibility, doesn't
bother me that much.
