I'd personally argue that Java5 doesn't really offer very much apart
from window dressing, but I know I'm in the minority.

There should be an announcement on the users list regardless of what
is decided.  My 'non-vote' would be to make 1.8 the Java 1.4+ version
and retain 1.3 compatibility (as much as we can) for 1.7.2
