[jdom-interest] JDK 1.1 support

Just went to java.sun.com/products/jdk/1.1/download-jdk-windows.html to 
get a older copy of the JDK and try to fix this.  I noticed Sun has
declared jdk 1.1 to be in a "Sun End of Life process", with a transition
period of 1/10/2001 to 10/9/2002.

Is it still worth "fixing", eventhough Sun has declared it will no longer
support 1.1 in 8 months?
