That test passes, though I don't think that's technically a test of binary 
compatibility, since it's compiling the tests against 1.3.

So for my second test I did "mvn clean test" on the 1.2 source, then 
deleted the "classes" directory and added 1.3 as a dependency, so the 
previously compiled test classes would run against 1.3 binaries.  That 
test passed, too.

I think we're good!
