My mistake: we require the distribution to compile in order to build the 
source archives.  Looking at it now, I'm not sure this is the best way 
to have things my idea of source distribution would always be the 
largest set of all source files, which would compile conditionally based 
on platform.  But the easier change for this would be conceptually 
rather messy (the variable 'abcl.jsr-223.p' would have to be changed or 
its meaning overloaded, we would lose the build check before making a 
source release, etc.)

So, yes, Erik, please make the release with Java6 from now on.
