My understanding was that "target=JDK1.4" meant the 1.4 will be the 
default, out-of-box setup ( except maybe the inclusiong of mx4j ).

So far I wasn't able to even compile with 5.0 ( without source=1.4 ) - 
is this working now ?

In any case - it is IMO a bad idea to make 5.0 release a precondition 
for tomcat5.5. It would be good to have it released, but as long as 
target=1.4 we should be fine.
