Java 1.4 vs 5

I am implementing the OpenID 2.0 protocol as a Java library and I was  
wondering what version of Java to use for this.

The first thought would be to use Java 1.4 for broadest compatibility.

But Java 5 has been around for quite a while, Java 6 is around the  
corner, and AFAIK pretty much every platform supports it. Java 5  
would provide a better long term foundation.

Any comments on this?
