> We should require Java 6 for release 3.1.0. At this point there is full java6 
> support on all major platforms (linux/windows/macosx).
> The vast majority of ZooKeeper contributors use Java 6 when developing, and 
> hence do run into (usually minor) back-compatibility problems.
> I believe there are also some benefits regarding JMX (updated spec support in 
> java6) if we drop java 5.
> FWIW: Hadoop Core has also moved to require Java6:
