 Replying to [comment:2 mcs]:
 > I think this looks OK.  At the point in time we want people running
 4.0.8 to upgrade to 4.5, we would just remove the "no_update_for"
 directive and regenerate the update responses files?

 That would be one option, yes. Applied to master in commit
 7d7faa30b4443f0cc76474738a36fd3f45e875f4. Do we really think this were
 necessary if we would just avoid updating the update responses files in
 the first place and deliver the updated ones only when we want to allow
 updating with the built-in updater? There should be no issue with possibly
 downgrades of 4.5 users to 4.0.8 in this case as the updater related code
 is comparing versions and does not install the update if the proposed
 update has a lower version number IIRC.
