I think the better solution is to ask CollabNet not to publish non-standard 1.5 binaries to the public. I can't imagine causing such a confusion is in their best interest either. Besides, if we do release 1.5 end of this year, we're talking about 4 months here. That's not a lot of time to make a) a custom releae and then b) having to maintain it.
