I'm seriously thinking of leaping direct from 1.2 to 1.4 without the
distraction of 1.3 in the middle. Is this likely to be possible? My
staff have been testing 1.3 intermittantly and don't think the benefits
outweigh the downside at the moment. Is it worth me getting them to
start testing 1.4 instead?
