That setting is unavailable when I use a "Ant-based Application Jar" 
project. When I switch to a "Java Tool" project, I do see that setting, 
but changing it to 1.4 doesn't solve the problem. However, I don't 
think that it is that big of a problem, so I will just leave the few 
instances of assert commented out.
