Strong +1 to branching 1.5.x in 2 weeks.

The presence of Cyrus SASL support alone justifies the release from a
feature POV, IMO, and the arguments regarding stabilization, quoted
above, feel very very right to me.

I do not believe inserting an extra release cycle will slow down MT
development - even if all of the committers who have been working on MT,
remain focussed on MT, I think there's enough others of us to work on
the release engineering.
