Beta release of the Java implementation of dbus

Something I just thought of regarding the float extension is that 
there's no private namespace on the type codes; that is, if there were 
ever another official type code, then it might collide with the float 
one. The practical result would be that depending on the feature 
negotiation while authenticating, you might have to interpret the same 
type code in two different ways. This could matter if (like the C 
library) you had type code values in the ABI and guaranteed that they 
corresponded to the wire protocol.

In practice I doubt this will come up, since I don't think we have any 
proposal (other than float) for new type codes.
