Question on Java JDK build environments impacting JRE use

I am quite happy for us for produce Java7 bytecode, if producing Java7
bytecode will actually make something work better.
But so far I have seen no signs of that.
And I'm speaking here, not as "some random hacker", but as a person with
10+ years experience of writing 1Mloc+ Java applications, who has had
the mispleasure of actually writing bytecode by hand.

There is no "languishing" going on here, simply good software engineering.
Changing the constants in the bytecode header has no effect at runtime
UNLESS YOU ARE ALSO USING THE NEW BYTECODE FEATURES.
Which we are not.
There is nothing in our current codebase which could make use of newer
As soon as such a thing appears, I will be very happy to lend my support
to upgrading our bytecode version.
