Backward incompatible change: DZ will become JDK 1.6+ only

Jukebox, the platform DZ is built on top of, is currently undergoing a code review and enhancement process. One side effect of advanced JMX uplift is that the new Jukebox will be incompatible with JDK 1.5.

Whereas JMX is probably *the* cause to upgrade from JDK 1.5 to 1.6 (latter is the first version where it is really usable), the source code compatibility of JMX features is broken.

The improvement is so significant that I'm willing to restrict DZ to 1.6 as soon as new Jukebox is pulled in.

Speak up if you care.
