Re: Default compile of jdk1.0 & JDK1.1

I havent gone back to the history ( non-cvs ) of the file, but it would
just seem that it would be 'easy' to enhance a '1.1' test  by adding a
1.2 only feature. It just seemed to me, at this time without further
investigation, that the enhancement is the 'bug', and not u have
'featured' it.
thats all.
And i view it as just one more test lost to the JDK1.1 suite of things.
