The reason I'm not keen on this is that 0.9.7 is missing security fixes
and will never receive another refresh.  So it's certainly not recommended
anymore for 2.0 or 2.2, nevermind 'the next' release.

I don't think we need to go out of our way to break it, but if there are
tests for 0.9.7'ness (or 0.9.8-initial) we won't need those tests anymore.
