I don't believe we do, currently, but that's another option.  Another thing I
hadn't mentioned is that if a group of people decided they wanted to continue
to maintain 1.4 beyond the point where we stopped, that's an option that we've
considered giving.  No idea if anybody capable of maintaining the branch would
want to, but it's a possibility.

Once again, I want to reiterate that no such decision to discontinue 1.4 has
been made.  For the foreseeable future, 1.4 will continue to be maintained as
an open release branch that will continue to have bugfixes and releases.
