At the moment, I'm very glad that it doesn't. Aside from a few
extensions which didn't have 1.5-compatible versions yet, I couldn't
get java working in 1.5. Granted, I would have put more time into it
if I were stuck with 1.5, but I was able to downgrade easily back to
1.0.7 with only fairly minor issues. Well, one of those issues would
ordinarily garner the advice: create a brand-new profile and re-load
everything. I was able to track it down to one extension, though.
