FYI:  There is nothing "unstable" about JDK 1.5 (or Java 5).  It is the
recommended "production" platform/runtime of choice for many large
vendors and IT shops, and has been for some time now.  It has simply
been package-masked here at Gentoo because there have been some
lingering ebuilds that didn't compile cleanly with it.  Hopefully it is
going to be unmasked VERY soon.

I think Eddy answered this for you already, but let us know if you still
have questions/concerns.
