If it really is just those releases, then yes, considering the number of
cases we apparently have, and considering how ugly it is in some cases to
move the weak function anywhere else, maybe banning those versions is the
proper thing to do.

It probably won't hurt very many people - yeah, some people will be forced
to upgrade, but I have this memory of early 4.1 having had other bugs
anyway, so it's probably a good idea.
