I don't think this is accurate.  I've executed the output of this compiler
on quite a few JVM's in various versions without problems.

If you're talking about the core API's (ie what comes with the JDK), you can
use either the JDK 1.0 API's with what we're shipping, or the JDK 1.1 API's
with the bindings we have on our web site, provided you use the correct
version of or rt.jar for the corresponding major version of the
JDK (i.e. 1.0 or 1.1).  We intend to update the bindings again next spring
when JDK 1.2 becomes available.

As far as the various higher-level libraries, like AFC, Swing etc, that
remains to be seen for now.
