I think this is a conceptually incorrect approach
to try to keep a relatively slowly changing wiki page up-to-date with fast-paced commits.
I believe this approach is doomed, and the status page is going to get out-of-date 
while it is being edited.

I would suggest the following "fix" to the approach:
* Reserve the "supported platforms" notion for the developer releases or snapshots,
and do not use the term with respect to SVN trunk
* Relate the list of "supported platforms" with the release management process,
  and describe the status of particular snapshots, and not SVN trunk in general.
