well, now that 1.4.2 has shipped if there is a diff from spec to impl, 
we can complain.

As an aside, I spent last night tracking down a 1.4.2 regression in my 
code. the cause: the new PIII floating point stuff, in which floats are 
moved to the PIII SSE register set, and (if present), doubles to the P4 
SSE2 FPU. It looks like the new register sets are more accurate than the 
old x86 ones, so some floating point number comparisions were failing, 
when they were suceeding before.
