1. Can River source code use all JDK 1.6 features? In particular, what 
should I do about generics? No generics, generics only in appropriate 
private data structures, or use generics wherever appropriate, including

interfaces between modules?

2. How do people do revision control for work-in-progress? I like to 
check in early and often, so that I have a good change log and can do a 
lot of experiments, especially when performance tuning.

3. My preferred environment is a combination of Eclipse and Cygwin. Have

others used that combination? If so, can I have a copy of the Eclipse 
editor set-up to get the right format, and also any Cygwin set-up?
