Thanks for doing some preliminary checks. Like I said, I'm not against
it, in fact I think I have an open issue somewhere to upgrade :)
I could also test some platforms and especially packaging.

I just want us to be careful before upgrading, and when we do it, we
should upgrade the ant on jenkins and all that to the version we
intend to support. Its a symlink so we can keep the old one in case
all hell breaks loose ...

We should also think about which bugfix level of 1.8 we require. I
know a version of 1.8.x (not sure which one) ships by default on mac,
which may have urged David to start questioning why we have this
verbage. will any of the 1.8's work? or do we need 1.8.1 as a minimum,
etc, because of some bugs that would break things.
