If you're compiling against the classes for Java 6, -target 6 is the
right default. Anyone wanting to compile for the Java 5 platform
should set -target 1.5 and should also set a matching bootclasspath, so
that they don't accidentally use API only available in Java 6. That
would not be reasonable for the OpenJDK compiler.
