That's been the plan, but I'm wondering if we might not be better of just
going for JSE 5.  I do not expect to see anything releasable from trunk
until end of 2007, and that should be fine for JSE 5 and later.

For example, this would allow us to use annotations to help with assembly,
and that would be a pervasive change.
