    @nlalevee, we already broke a few things by going Java 7 (and gained native 
symlinks 😉). For more examples, look at commons-lang3 breaking off 
commons-text and introducing escapeHtml3 and escapeHtml4 instead of escapeHtml 
-- all without changing a major version. Pointing to some hypothetical closed 
code is a poor excuse -- as if commercial vendors (or their customers) have no 
QA and expect the dependencies to be drop-ins every time. I will present the 
argument on ant-dev in a more coherent form later.
