I wouldn't want to create the impression we support the 1.5 branch by
making any official release from it.  If this patch applies cleanly or
can be made to apply trivially, then the backport should suffice.  If
some prpls do not work, you can certainly opt to update your ./configure
options accordingly, but you can reasonably assume that 1.5.x will only
get worse, and spending the time trying to figure out what still works
and what doesn't seems counter-productive to me.
