I've been looking forward to this for a while now.  1.5 has been out for 
over a year and given how much more time we need to complete the 
roadmap, let alone any sort of enterprise adoption, it makes perfect 
sense to take advantage of many of the features in 1.5.  In addition to 
SASL, we already require 1.5 for SSL in MINA and I, for one, would like 
to use some of the new concurrent collections and crypto.
