You should become entirely comfortable with the idea that you actually
*need* 1.7.7 rather than the current version. Once you decide that the
current version isn't adequate for your needs for some reason, you'll
be in unsupported territory. That's a heavy burden to take on so please

If nothing in what I said above changes your intent to use 1.7.7, then
