As it is right now, the default setup is for J2SE 5.0.  Users must
download the compat package to run on JDK 1.4.  All the compat package
has is Xerces impl, the XML APIs, and the JMX jar.

My understanding of "target=JDK1.4" is that it can run on JDK 1.4
without any recompilation.  That's the case now.

OK.  I tend to agree, but it probably merits a bit more discussion.
