ugh. please please maintain JDK 1.1 compatibility for runtime at
least. compiling is ok with JDK 1.2 but JDK 1.1 is a lot more stable for
high volume traffic at runtime. ive seen suns JDK 1.2.2 lock up under high
loads...1.1 doesnt. dropping 1.1 compatibility before 1.2 becomes stable
enough for production use is IMHO a really *bad* idea.
