[hibernate-dev] change the source to 1.7 in build script?

Because we never agreed to move to 1.7.  And I don't think it makes 
sense.  Java 6 is not even EOL yet (close, yes).

The only 1.7 source requirement as I understand it is that jaxb 
"required" thing that you added.

We do currently need *javac* from 1.7 to compile master (and metamodel 
since we are merging master into it) but that is due to a bug in the 1.6 
javac (see earlier email to the dev list).  But there is actually 
nothing there that is not 1.6 compatible in either source nor bytecode.
