I assume you mean that 9.2 would have a "split" release (separate 1.4
support) and all the older active release branches would remain with a
single 1.4-compatible version and have backpatches from the new
1.4-compatible branch? That could work, but for what it's worth, I
think the best way to do this would be to drop 1.4 compatibility
entirely in the mainline development branch (e.g., with 9.2 the first
non-1.4-compatible release; I'd love to talk to anyone planning to
talk to 9.2 from Java 1.4), and keep all the existing release branches
compatible until we drop support.
