Actually, upcoming 1.4.3 is only needed if you want to use --send-keys
to store the keys on the the LDAP server.

For importing (--recv-keys) or searching, any 1.4.x release should work.

Verified this with GnuPG 1.4.1 (Cygwin port) used by Thunderbird's
Enigmail 0.94 extension:
Opened Key Management -> Keyserver -> Search for keys.
Keys were found and imported from ldap:// just fine.
