I know people who still run 1.2.x adamantly on the same basic premise. 
  I do look at them like they're crazy now, but even as recently as a 
year and a half ago, I would not have necessarily.  There seems to be 
an informal consensus that 1.4.18 was the first "serious" stable 1.4.x 

I've run into enough problems with 1.6.x crashing that I have no faith 
in it as of yet.  Why, I just had an installation in production 
mysteriously segfault this morning...
