Actually, kaffe sets java.version to kaffe's own version number, which is 
1.1.x-cvs for the CVS tree at the moment. There is no official number, AFAIK,
as kaffe's coverage of JDK APIs is not very uniform, i.e. some APIs are
implemented up to JDK 1.4, some are at 1.1. 

So you should pick a java.version that suits your job.
