No, we don't plan to port it back to 1.4.  It will actually take years
until ECC keys are in wide use and by then 2.1 will be the stable
release.  I even hope to declare 2.1 stable sometime this year.

BTW, the draft is already in the rfc editors's publication queue.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
