+1 on the need for a clear version support policy without depending on 
trawling the mailing list archives. We should discuss and vote on a 
policy, and then document it on the web site.

I am strongly opposed to attempting to support any version that we do 
not routinely regression test. In practice, that means supporting at 
most two releases. If we think we can handle two, I suggest 1.5 and 1.6. 
If not, I think 1.6 only.
