Comment (by karsten):

 I think we're leaving third-party jars out of the release jar on purpose.
 The idea is to avoid version conflicts where we'd be shipping an older or
 newer version of a library that people use in their applications.  I
 vaguely remember that our version might take precedence over theirs, and
 that can be bad.

 So, in `CONTRIB.md` we write: "Whenever we add a new dependency, that's
 clearly a major change that needs to be written into the change log,
 because applications will have to add this dependency, too."  We also
 write: "For minor changes, we'd bump to x.x.1."

 The question now is whether we can justify putting out a point release
 with a major change.  I lean towards no.  And even a medium change might
 require a bump to 1.5.0, though I'm less certain about that being a great
 idea.  The question is: should we just call this one 1.5.0 and bulk-change
 tickets to move them to 1.6.0?  Happy to create a milestone for that.  Let
 me know!
