Here is the plan:
 - as the 1.5->1.6 upgrade is working fine, we should automatize the
 upgrade procedure and ensure 1.5 would transition to 1.6, thus
 rendering 1.5 obsolete
 - when good packaging has been uploaded and migration has prooved to be
 smooth, request the removal of 1.5

1.4 removal would certainly be harder. I hope popcon would show more
people moving to latest version and we could then consider it unused. We
should nevertheless consider testing 1.4->1.6 transition...
