jquery is fine (we are shipping 1.7.1, so 1.7.2 should be no problem), but
I think we do need dev jquery-ui.  pagedown now includes a tiny patch:

$> git diff rel-0.12.1 master

I don't think anything else has changed there.

Right - I think if we cut off new features right now, 0.13 is a
satisfactory release.  I already have a few PRs explicitly targeting 0.14.
