   Either I'm missing your point, or you're missing my point.  There are 
five release branches now which are "not officially supported", but I have 
yet to see any circumstance where they have, in fact, not been 
supported.  If those branches were not being supported because people were 
too busy to support them, I'd understand perfectly; but as far as I can 
see, those branches *are* being supported.
