I agree with this assessment. It is currently very easy to backport almost
all new functionality from trunk (5x) to the 4x branch. Although there are
some features unique to trunk, I don't think the list is extensive yet.

I thought that the switch to Java 7 in trunk would force a relatively
short time line to 5.0, but the Java 7 requirement itself was backported
to 4x, so that influence is no longer there.

I still think that a serious push for 5.0 will not begin until backporting
code changes from trunk to 4x requires signing manual intervention
