I have a different opinion about this. Sooner or later we have to upgrade
this lib (I think better sooner than later).
The component generator does the big part of the update (write component and
tag classes),
only minor changes on the renderers was done to make all examples work (the
big part
of the work is on build module). Move changes from one branch to another
should be an
easy task. Passing tomahawk to 1.2 let us see more bug on myfaces 1.2, and
tomahawk 1.1 apps should be easy. JSF 1.2 has more than one year and JSF 2.0is
coming. The only thing to be taken into account is continue doing releases
1.1 and that's all.

It's a matter of subjective opinions (all valid of course). But in my humble
opinion, better
move forward than stay quiet. Not one step back, nor to catch momentum.
