It might make sense to try to enumerate the benefits of switching to Java7
APIs and dependencies.  IMO, the ones listed so far on this thread don't
make a compelling enough case to drop Java6 in branch-2 on any time frame,
even if this means supporting Java6 through 2015.  For example, the change
in RawLocalFileSystem semantics might be an incompatible change for
branch-2 any way.
