I committed a fix as [svn r12121][1] (our messages crossed in passing). 
  If you could look at this, I think we are ok.

I just finished testing under Mac OSX with the Apple Java VMs that a jar 
built with Java6 (and JSR-223 code) works with Java5.  With your 
assurance about the separate nature of the JSR-223 codebase, I think 
we're pretty safe on this, but further testing would be welcome.

Would you really go for a 0.15.1 release?  I would be more for starting 
the 0.16 release process soon.  The only problem there, is that I 
suspect that Erik is going to be real busy in September (personal 
reasons).  There is a branch for 0.15 ("branches/0.15.x/abcl"), so 
backporting the changes shouldn't be much of problem.  Making a release 
might be a bit tricky, because I think only Erik has the necessary 
authorization rights for pushing files onto Sourceforge.  Or maybe Ville 
can do that?  Alternatively, we could host the ABCL release on 
GoogleCode under my abcl-dynamic-install project (I already host 
pre-built 0.15 abcl.jar's there linked from the Cliki page.

is nothing to compare to it now."
