Yea, although this means that 1.5.3 (a Version with the libdirs tweak) being just 5 months old will have to wait another bump, I fear. For my part going to plain 1.5 is useless WRT the load_lib situation. I see no value in conditionalizing simplified libdir handling on a lucky user with recentish stuff so i'm just waiting another 2 or 4 years for this very minor cleanup.
