	You can also either check out from the tags dir in our repo,, or 
download the equivalent tarball snapshots (.gz or .bz2, which ever you 
prefer) from the downloads directory,

	This is certainly an issue for anyone installing from the 1.4 release 
branch (or its snapshots), as the version number there is already 1.4. 
When released, selfupdate wont notice any difference, but then again we 
can presume people installing from svn are savvy enough to know either 
about forcing the upgrade or how to install from source ;-)
