I do not mean to slight the supporters of a 1.4.3 release at all.  I
believe that supporters of a 1.4.3 release have only the best
intentions and that many libtool users (but not libtool itself) would
benefit from a 1.4.3 release.

To clarify things, until very recently I have served only the role of
a libtool user, not a libtool developer.  While I have used the
libtool code which would become 1.5 through its entire development, I
have contributed little to it.

The gestation period for 1.5 spans well over two years because for
quite a long time it lived in the multi-language-branch.  Developers
like Ossama Othman, Robert Boehne, and Gary Vaughan deserve credit for
this work.
