Actually vector_135.hpp would be compatible with all versions except
1.34 and vector_134.hpp compatible with all versions but 1.35. Just
1.34.1 and 1.35 are incompatible with each other. I guess since most
1.35 users are aware of the problem the sensible default might be
being compatible with all versions but 1.35
