The the API in the "java5" branch is backward compatible; the generics and 
varargs are erased at compile time.  Of course, the code has to be 
compiled with target=1.5, but on a Java 1.5 VM you could swap it in and 
not notice the difference.

If that lets us call it "dbutils 1.3" and avoid extra branching work, 
that'd be great.
