I would agree that for Lang that *if* the API change breaks
compatibility, then a package name change would be appropriate - but I
think its a mistake in general to start making decisions along the
lines JDK 1/5/Generics == package rename BEFORE there are any concrete
proposals on the table.


P.S. Perhaps its a moot point in Lang's case since I guess the
deprecated enum package has to be removed to move to a minimum of JDK
