FWIW my VM for all the 1.4.0 RCs I tested/signed used Neon 0.25.5 (right
out of the dependency zip file). I was only using 0.24.7 for trunk
development, it's simply what I've been using since I set up my work
machine back in the day and it worked until r21332 - No compelling reason
for it beyond inertia.
