Actually, that bug is going to require fixes to tcnative, and unless you
want to do a release of tcnative first, I think I'm going to have to
wait until later.

If I don't get a release of tcnative, the behavior would be that certain
configurations would likely cause NoSuchMethorError or something else
ugly because a native method would be missing.

I could write the Java code to check for the tcnative version before
attempting such things and throw a nicer exception, but I'm not sure
what the tcnative version would be to test against (current+1 is a
reasonable bet, but not always the case).

Any thoughts?
