In a perfect world, I'd prefer for someone to fix the newer port on 6.
However, it's fair to note that 6 is only a year away from secteam EOL
(6.3 in January, 6.4 in November) and not much development is going on
there.  So, I think it's fair to ask maintainers to keep things working
on 7 and 8, and 6 only if they have time.  (Ports on -HEAD currently need
a lot of work, too.)
