You can set the vm on a per user basis. java-config -s for that. So use
java-config -S to set the system vm to 1.4 and java-config -s to set
your development vm to 1.5. To get the system vm working you need to
source the env files in .gentoo. That way emerges work fine and you can
still develop with 1.5. Our documentation could be better and hopefully
in the future it is.
