1.5 is going EOL this year,  the problem is that real world deployments lag
behind in upgrading, sometimes for the good reason of stability.

Moving to 1.6 will cut of more users then 1.5 would do, my personal opinion
is that it from a community standpoint might be a bit too early to drop 1.5
support,
especially since 1.6 dont offer so much new stuff as 1.5 did vs 1.4 .
