Well, not quite.  If you check vte's NEWS file, 0.15.6 fixes various
bugs introduced in 0.15.5 and 0.15.4, and checking 0.15.4, that fixes
various regressions, and it goes on and on.  There are really two
choices: go forward, or roll back to before Chris Wilson started
hacking...  I prefer the former as the latter will be a nightmare...

Good news is that he's now back and ready to commit and release.  He has
four proposed patches in bugs 417652, 416635, 416634, and 416558.  Of
which, I'm inclined to just commit the one in 416635.

So, to summarize, I'm now just asking for permission to commit the patch
in 416635.  It's a very short patch and cannot break more than what is
already broken.
