Speaking of that, BTW, why couldn't the "near future" actually be just
now? I remember we spoke of that on fop-dev a few months ago, and
basically agreed upon dropping 1.3 support after the 0.93 release, and
after having made a poll on fop-user. I think it's time to do it. Any
negative opinion?

Regarding Commons this is slighty more complicated, as this will also
depend on Batik's decision. Currently Batik doesn't depend on Commons,
but IIRC the plan is to start the transition after the 1.7 release,
right? So, what are your plans regarding Java 1.3 support?
