In theory we could do that but since the point of this release is to
evade a legal threat, I'm going to push out the release with a rider
note to users that we did a rush release etc. and a suggestion that
they stick with 1.5 if they are not happy with the changes made in 1.6
and wait until 1.7 release in December.
