Thanks for doing this. The problem I have is that the first patch removes
all support for JAVA_VERSION < 1.5. I had a similar patch that preserves
this support by mapping 1.2+, 1.3+ and 1.4+ to 1.5+, much the way things
work currently for 1.2+. Based on java-version.txt, that's an awful lot
of ports that need to be touched otherwise. Were you proposing to update
those ports at the same time as you commit your patch?
