I wouldn't worry toooo much about 1.4.  It has a lot of issues,  
including only supporting single DES encryption types.  The only  
"current" platform I deal with that uses 1.4 is Solaris 9, and it's  
pretty easy to provide a newer JVM on a Sun.

Ideally the code should provide reasonable (overwriteable) defaults  
wherever possible.

More later.
