I know there are still some application servers that use 1.3 and i use
it alot to test with before i actually deploy to those servers. I know
that there are some java apps that require the 1.3 to compile their
source. i have been looking at doing the apache derby ebuild and that
one require that you use 1.3 and 1.4 to build certain parts of it
i think there still might be some need for 1.3.
