Saxon 9.0 has introduced a new API, s9api, that exploits generics. Existing
users can continue to use older APIs. I'm hoping I can drop JDK 1.4 support
within a year or so - I suspect that people who need to stick with old Java
releases have no great urgency to move to new Saxon releases. 

For JDOM, version 1.0 (and hopefully 1.1) are very stable, and I think you
could safely adopt the position "if you want to use an old JDK, then you can
use an old JDOM as well".
