I think it is very reasonable to make things compile on the versions we
claim to support :-)

Not at all.  The commit has introduced quite a few changes that are not
related to Java5 AFAICT.  Might by Jan's IDE settings.  It added TABs to
some files, introduced final where possible (but not required) and even
introduced a bug in <tar> that fortunately was found by the CIs - but
lost in the noise of other test failures.

Reviewing those last few commits is on my TODO list, hope to get around
to it on the weekend.
