Ah, thanks for clarifying. I wasn't sure if the r42 stuff needed to be
*able* to compile against a 4.2 framework, or needed to actually *be*
compiled against 4.2. Luckily, I had pretty much no enthusiasm for
implementing my proposed solution. :)

but I'm not enthusiastic about figuring out how to make it work reliably.  I guess the real
solution (long term) is to fix the maven-bundle-plugin to create source jars containing the
sources for the classes it puts in the main bundle.

I had a play with the shade plugin but I didn't get very far before
trying to find another solution. :)

I think I now have the better javadoc being built, and so what we have
is that the contents of the javadoc jar lines up with the
user-consumable util bundle, whereas the source zips mirror what's in
svn. This seems relatively neat to me, so I'll respin the release.
