IMO, we would drop 0.4.3. I don't think we maintained for backward  
compatibility reasons, more because we didn't want to update the admin  
console code, at that point in time.

I think it would be good to upgrade to 1.1.1. I also assume it would  
replace the current 1.0.2 version? Perhaps we should consider encoding  
the dojo version in the dojo path name.

I'd prefer to see this work broken down into reasonable chunks (where  
possible), so that we can track progress (and others can participate).  
First add /dojo-1.1.1 and start incrementally moving code over to use  
new dojo. I don't know the internals of the admin console. So, not  
sure how well that work breaks down into manageable chunks.
