JQuery 1.7.1 and Ember

I’ve got jQuery 1.7.1 (can’t pay down the upgrade right now). I wanted to find a way to make this work with Ember. I discovered that I can set ENV.FORCE_JQUERY and suppress the jQuery version assertion.

My integration tests pass, but I was hoping to hear about why this version was excluded in the first place. Is there a bug with 1.7 and Ember which prompted the exclusion?
