>> What's the problem with supporting older clients?

The problem is that the older clients are severely flawed. This even
includes the 1.x DeviceMap releases. They jumbled device, client, and
operating system detection into 1. So we have a mix of attributes, some of
which are correct, some are infereed, and some are completely wrong. So I
for one have no interest into supporting these clients. Any improvements or
new features should be put into the 2.0 clients.
