Thanks Adam.  I don't think anyone's tried compiling with JDK 1.5, so we've
never noticed that they added a new interface to java.util.regex that is
named exactly the same as ours with basically the exact same methods,
although with slight adjustments (e.g., they renamed begin(int) start(int)
and provided a group() that returns group(0)).  I suppose this is where we
should say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery instead of noting
that if Jakarta developers had been consulted by Sun in the development of
java.util.regex, there may have been a MatchResult interface in JDK 1.4.
Anyway, I've adjusted the import statements accordingly.  Thanks again Adam.
I guess Gump runs with JDK 1.5 do not produce automatic email notifications?
