As a compromise, what about the following:
- remove ABI-incompatible changes for 1.4.x
- release a 1.5.0 marked as experimental, with everything that Travis
wants to put in. It would be a preview for python 3k as well, so it
conveys the idea that it is experimental pretty well.
- the 1.6.x branch would be a polished 1.5.x.
The advantages is that 1.5.0 can be push relatively early, but we would
still keep 1.4.0 as the "stable" release, against which every other
binary installer should be built (scipy, mpl).
