I thought we were supporting 1.2 ? I am fine with moving to 1.4. I
believe the build system enforces the version now in the compiler
settings, so that is probably all that needs to change.

Is there any issue on Linux where open source compilers (gcj, jikes)
are used? Do they all support 1.4 and have the necessary runtime
libraries?
