Up to you :)  SID == still-in-development.  Users don't/shouldn't
trust it.  It's meant for packaging people to experimenting and
testing, which seems useful in this case.  (And also for users to
get "bleeding edge stuff", for much the same reason)

I don't mind maintaining 1.4.x.  It is maintainable.  Just, the
problems in 1.0.x and 1.2.x were too hard to solve.  Although, there
are some minor problems in 1.4.x that are also "too hard", but
nothing dangerous.
