Yeah I started to respond but looked into the changelogs for 1.5.14 and
decided to chance it anyway. I am going to say that if 1.5.14 works
well, I'm going to be very strongly in favor of sticking with it for the
1.2.x line unless we have a clear case where we know some newer version
fixes a problem we're having.

For what it's worth, I've seen them make dynamic linking fixes for one
platform only to break it for another. Especially for OS X with their
wonky dynamic linking.
