    I tend to agree that 1.3 dependencies are probably not warranted
at this point.  In fact this is a larger issue for me since jdk1.3
currently isn't supported on Solaris 2.5.1 (and probably never will
be).  Currently I'm "borrowing" a test solaris 2.7 box for this work.

    There doesn't appear to be a real nice solution for this one.  I
personally think Action's are great so I kind of hate to replace this
with the alternative but we could.

BH>     * method java.awt.image.ColorModel.getTransferType() [javadoc
BH> does not indicate that this is a new method, but it is].
    This can be replaced by checking the SampleModel & datatype in use.
