It seems there are people more interested in 1.5. :-)

I think this doesn't make much sense.

When we talk about roadmap, as I understand, it's more about human

But if old code is maintained and synced *in off* (the external engine
is synced with HEAD accordingly to Vlad), time is wasted without benefit
