Neat! The 1.3.x branch have some nice properties that 1.2.x doesn't
have, for example, it works without patches on mingw32, is completely
LGPL, gcrypt.h includes stdlib.h, and maybe some things I forgot. What
remains until it will be declared as stable?
Alternatively, if it is faster, would you consider releasing a 1.2.5
with this stuffed back-ported? I could propose a patch if it would help.
