2.4.5 is a bugfix release and should contain no new features. We add new 
features to bugfix releases only in rare cases.. for example if the 
feature is also a bugfix

In this case I think it should be 2.5 only. I suggest we wait 2 weeks, 
then Cedric is back from holiday and we can talk about doing a 
2.5-beta-1 release.
