Personally, I don't think many people will use 1.4 & 10.9 (I assume
that's what we're talking about).

Re CDC - It seemed interesting a number of years ago, now?
On the one hand, it would be nice if we could wholehartedly go for 1.5
& further. On the other hand, CDC support is nice to have in theory...

I guess it depends on if anyone's using it. I seems to me the people I
had interested in it seem to have lost interest in the combination

I wonder where the project is going in the first place, does anyone know?

I do worry that if we drop (raise to 1.5?) the 1.4 threshold, the CDC
support immediately falls down too...
