AFAIK, RetroTranslator should be sufficient.

I just filtered the JARs from the command line. I suppose the Maven
plugin would work too. I think it might be best to keep this a
separate JAR distribution and make the "cannonical" target Java 5.

I uploaded the test distribution from August 2 to my home directory.

I'd keep the J4 as a "special" distribution and leave J5 as the
default. So I'd say keep what we got as it is, and just add the ZIP
with a translated J4 JARs.
