Perhaps usually, but for Commons IO?

I see only a few isolated candidates for Java 5 improvements in the
filefilter, input, and output subpackages, and the comparator package
is mostly covered already by Niall's changes that AFAIUI are backwards
compatible. In the main io package there are some methods that would
benefit from Java 5 features, but they are also a minority.

Do such isolated changes justify changing the entire API? Or do you
have some other major changes in mind?
