This leaves us in a pickle unless we can guarantee that the every  
line of code will both compile and run correctly on all JVMs released  
since 1.2.  I'm not sure that we can guarantee to this level of surety.

Do you have any advice for building/testing a release to avoid a  
'working' release for one jdk which breaks on a different jdk?  I was  
seriously considering the release manager role for 1.7 until this  
email :)
