Another view of "ROS1.5" would be where APIs (especially the C++ API) are
maintained even as the underlying transport and serialization is changed
around, an improved node/nodelet/launch scheme is developed, etc.

I support the DDS direction, but it does seem to be an all-or-nothing
affair, and that's one of the biggest bummers about it.
