Yes, it is, i tried to change it and partially revert that innovation
preventing commit [1], but failed ;-(
See the patch and comments [2].

Especially "friendly" is that comment:

"... keeping you from unconditionally setting "-source 1.6 -target 1.6"
in your private tree until such time as your work is ready to make it's
way upstream ..."

because that's "the way and the spirit" how open source projects work:
Don't share anything with anyone until you are actually done!

But anyway i can conduct a new and shiny "51" byte code version of LO if
you would like to try it and see if we have any improvements with JAB
with it?
