Trouble is, we mostly haven't bothered to back-patch the fixes.  Putting
out a 7.1.4 would involve going through the CVS logs, figuring out which
entries represented fixes for old bugs that deserve back-patching, and
then applying the patch (possibly after changes to get it to apply
against the older code).  This'd be a huge amount of work --- cvs2cl
reports more than a thousand separate commits since last September, so
even trolling the log would be a significant effort.  Testing the end
result would be a problem too...
