The community are the maintainers, therefore a maintainer has spoken for
a minor version increment, rather than a patch release increment.
Enough has changed to increment the minor version number.

Since I'm one of the community, I suggest the release to be 1.5 and that
Akim's suggestion for AC_PREREQ a strong point.  Perhaps, both a 1.4.3
and a 1.5 where 1.4.3 does a AC_PREREQ 2.13.
