Sounds like a good plan to me. The only projects I know of today that are stuck on 1.4 support are running on modified versions of Java for mainframes.

By the way, I hope no one objects, but I have added Allain as a project committer... :-)

One effective way to obtain a vote would be to:
1. branch now (leaving generics in HEAD and 1.4 as an old branch)
2. publish a new version of piccolo with generics and 1.5 dependencies
3. see how many people complain

If there is an overwhelming response that we need to keep up significant support for 1.4, we can always focus our efforts on the branch, or just revert HEAD to the 1.4 branch.

know that it won't be wasted effort.

When will we have a result for this "vote"?

Comment #11 on issue 12 by willismorse: Generics 

I vote for adding generics. We're almost ready to drop support for 1.5 in our products; 1.4 has been off our
radar for a couple years now.
