None of these are actually true. 1.6 should be EOL'd right now based on
releasing 3.0. It just is behind because we committed to putting out
a final release there that hasn't happened yet.

Traditionally we support 1 release back (major release wise) so sometime
after 4.0 ships we'll EOL the 2.x tree. (i.e. the same way 1.5.x was EOL'd
after 2.0 shipped, etc).
