[dsdp-pmc] What do you think about e4 using Java5 ?

Hi Gorkem, Mark,

thanks for your kind words on the DSDP PMC. While I have you, 
there is a question I'd like to ask you: on the e4 mailing
list we had a short discussion about moving e4 core APIs to
Java5 (generics, enums, util.concurrent package):

How would you see such a move from the "Java on devices" point
of view?

Generics could be "cross-compiled" to run on an 1.4 compatible
VM, since they are a source only concept and erasures allow 
running the same code on 1.4. For enums and API usage (such 
as the Java5 util.concurrent package) it's not that simple.

What do you think? Is it still a requirement to have Eclipse 
core APIs run on CDC/CLDC? Is there a chance that Java5 
concepts get pushed into the micro VM's eventually? Do you 
have any other contacts that I could ask this questions?
