Just FYI, we use a tool called "Retroweaver" to backport our fully Java
1.5 software so that it runs on Java 1.4. It basically removes all the
generics stuff and does some minor other things (StringBuilder vs.
StringBuffer), after running your jar through it you can directly use it
in 1.4 environments without any manual intervention. Might be an option
for ANTLR, too.
