+1 to experimentation.  Let's do this in a branch so we don't commit 
ourselves to it?

Yeah this is my biggest concern.  If this is fine then I'm definately a +1.

Also note that most 1.5 API can be downloaded as separate JSR modules 
namely SASL jars but the user can download this.  To maintain an API 
agnostic character we still have to defensively code around then making 
features optional if the right JDK is used or the API is present because 
the user included the JSR JAR on the classpath.
