Ant 1.6.0 doesn't allow you to use source="1.5" in <javac>, 1.6.1

At least on the Linux version, the -target switch for javac is broken
(in the JDK, not in Ant) as -target 1.1 will produce 1.4 classes
anyway.  And the default value for -source seems to have changed as
the JDK complains about -target 1.1 unless you also explicitly set
-source 1.3.  It looks as if 1.4 was the new default.

I just don't want to adapt anything here before I see the docs for JDK
1.5 as it is hard to tell what has been changed intentionally and what
is a bug in the JDK.

I have successfully bootstrapped Ant with 1.5 and ran the testsuite.
I didn't try the javadoc task (but that should be trivial) or rmi
(hmm, could try to build JMeter).  I don't have any project that uses
javah, though.
