We could address the JVM version issue by wrapping the java.util.prefs stuff in org.apache.fop.prefs or ...configuration classes which mimic .util.prefs by a thin wrapper around the latter classes, and providing for 1.3 compatible versions to be written. The availability of 1.4 could easily be tested at run-time, and the appropriate switch set for use in org.apache.fop.prefs, reducing the build complexity.

Don't mind me... The build complexity will be same as at present, requiring 1.3 and 1.4 components to be shifted in at build time. The passing fantasy about a run-time switch afflicts me every now and then.
