1.4.0-rc4 tarballs up for testing/signing

Subversion 1.4.0-rc4 is up for testing and signing. The magic revision
is r20780.


As usual, signatures from full committers back to me, and enthusiastic
tester feedback is welcome. However, this RC is not yet blessed for
wide release, so please don't make it available to people not
interested in test-driving the new release.

Also, distro package maintainers, please to NOT include any RC builds,
even blessed, into operating system distros. The reasons for not
doing so were very eloquently outlined by Karl in a mail, which is
summarized at the above address.

The quick version is: we don't guarantee compatibility between the RCs
and the final release, so if people install the RC, all their
repositories and working copies might break unrepairably when they
upgrade to 1.4.0 proper. We don't want that kind of bad publicity,
and neither do you.

   Gil-galad was an elven king
   Of him the harpers sadly sing
   The last whose realm was fair and free
   Between the Mountains and the Sea

   His sword was long, his lance was keen
   His shining helm afar was seen
   The thousand stars of Heaven's field
   Were mirrored in his silver shield

   But long ago, he rode away
   And where he dwelleth, none can say
   For into darkness fell his star
   In Mordor where the shadows are
