There are people still using 4.X as their desktops but portmgr has already
been pushing for people to upgrade.  The GNOME team has already dropped
support for it; the KDE team will on the next release IIRC.

The support burden for keeping 4 branches simultaneously active is simply
becoming too much as time goes forward.

Again, I encourage anyone using FreeBSD as a desktop to move to 6.1 or
6-STABLE, when 6.1 goes out the door.
