The only idea that comes readily to mind is having two separate versions
& the Makefile deciding which one to use (or, having it be an
autogenerated file, and have some kind of detector for the Java
version). Hmmmm...

Well, we could also simply add a class
java.text.AttributedCharacterIterator to SRC in the makefile if we
detect 1.1.

I dunno, it's not satisfying. But I've tried some other possibilities,
using Object instead of AttributedCharacterIterator, and imporing an
AttributedCharacterIterator from another package after importing it from
java.text (so that the former would be used if present, and the latter
otherwise), but neither option does work.
