You know you're communicating with the bash package maintainer, right?
If he thinks that it makes sense to upgrade to a new version rather than
rolling a new, patched older version, then you can't really use the "4.1
isn't available" argument since his point is that he could make it
available.  He's probably the only person who understands the tradeoffs.
