We're running master + our local patches in production at FastMail.

You may have noticed a bunch of work last week on master - I'm pushing
as much time as I can into preparing for a real 2.5 release.  Even if
it doesn't include everything we want, we can do a 2.6 more quickly next
time.  There were just a couple of little things that were making 2.5
unusable for people with murder or unixheirarchysep: yes, or... things
which we don't use.

I have also backported a couple of things to 2.4 though, so we should
get one or two more stable 2.4 series releases for those who want to
stay a bit longer.
