1.4.0 - 2015-05-22
  - General changes/additions
    * add a aug_escape_name call to sanitize strings for use in path
      expressions. There are a few characters that are special in path
      expressions. This function makes it possible to have them all escaped
      so that the resulting string can be used in a path expression and is
      guaranteed to only match a node with exactly that name

      strings returned by aug_match can always be fed to aug_get, even if
      they contain special characters

      and then switching to interactive mode (Robert Drake)

    * Nginx: significantly reworked, now parses entire Nginx stock
             config successfully (Issue #179)
    * Pagekite: more fine-grained control of service_on entries; instead of
                'source' and 'destination', parse into protocol, kitename,
                backend_host, backend_port, and secret (Michael Pimmer)

                 file that starts with blank lines work; the new lens will
                 remove blank lines from the beginning of a file as soon as
                 lines are added to or removed from it (GH issue #202);
