Hi folks,

Looking at the changes on master since 1.4.0, we have a bunch of 
miscellaneous fixes by Christian, some autolaunch-related changes and 
miscellaneous bugfixes for Windows, and launchd integration and 
miscellaneous fixes for OS X. Plus a bunch of additions and cleanup to 
the documentation and its build system. So far I think this is all 
kosher for a 1.4.1 release.

My arg0namespace match rule stuff, acked by Simon (on #24317) and 
Lennart (on IRC or by email, I forget which) is ready to go. This branch 
makes argXpath matching match arguments of type 'o' (which previously 
they did not), and adds a new arg0namespace match rule key. I'm not sure 
whether it's worth starting a new unstable series for this.

But I also think it would be good to land Christian's maybe type. I'm 
planning to (re-)review those patches later this week so that they can 
finally be merged. This is a relatively big change so I think needs to 
go in 1.5.0. So probably the arg0namespace stuff should go in 1.5.0 too.

Any objections to my releasing 1.4.1 and 1.5.0 at the end of the week or 
early next week? What else, if anything, do people want to go into a 
hypothetical 1.6.0 in a month or so?
