I haven't changed the hint file in forever. I didn't think maintainers
needed to after the first release. I just assumed christopher or corrinna
did that in the main copy for updates.
I don't think I'll need to worry about compiling 4.6.6 against 1.3.22. The
upgrade isn't anything magical, so no one will suffer if they stick with
1.3.x and the old whois.
