I don't interpret our versioning rules that way ...
http://apr.apache.org/versioning.html says explicitly, "Compatibility
with prior minor versions is not guaranteed" for both source and binary

However, you certainly cannot retroactively add a function to 1.4.x that
was not already present in 1.5.0. So I expect you meant "micro version"
above, rather than "minor version".
