just a quick note:

tried on mac OS X (10.2.1), and discovered to my great shock and horror 
that apple are still only up to java 1.3.1!  hence it fails your test 
for v1.4+ ...  oh well...  shall probably look into trying to upgrade 
via a non-apple source later today, but I'm not getting my hopes up...  
:(  so much for sun and apple having a _very_ close relationship...  
and for java to be the 2nd language of choice on OS X...  :(
oh, tried to compile the cvs version about a week ago, and died...   
probably for the same reasons...  so back to diatheke for me...  :)

	nic...  :)
