Hmm no I don't remember such agreement. I think GCC is mostly backwards 
compatible, and anything that compiles on 4.1.1 should compile on 
previous versions. So it is better to support the latest stable.

Not many people would like to install such GCC version, but someone like 
me could at least give warnings that the most recent version of GCC 
doesn't compile some code.
