Just thought I'd go back over the messages and post a summary (with 

Those in favour of using Java 6 features:

Dennis Reedy
Jim Waldo
Jonathan Costers
Greg Trasuk
Niclas Hedhman

Those who would like to see continued support for  JRE 1.4 (bytecode
only, using Retrotranslator):

Patrick Wright
Wade Chandler
Peter Firmstone

Those against continued support for JRE 1.4 using Retrotranslator  (ie: 
drop support for JRE 1.4 althogether):

Greg Trasuk (my apologies Greg)

Just to clarify; the JRE 1.4 Compatibility Release (Using 
Retrotranslator) will NOT hold back the Main River Release, it may even 
make sense for it to be officially a Point release (River 3.1) rather 
than be supported in a Major Release. It's purpose; To allow continued 
support for JRE 1.4 while we move forward, to encourage migration from 
Jini 2.1 for existing users still on Java 1.4.

Best Regards,

Peter Firmstone.
