No - you're preventing people from using the numerous platforms which don't have 1.4 but *do*
have 1.3. Note that we're not talking about suggesting that people don't run Ant on 1.4 -
we're just talking about not *requiring* them to run 1.4.

Interesting - I've always found 1.3.1 to be more stable than either 1.2.x or 1.4, myself.
