The question was rhetorical. The consensus has always been that we
_do_ _indeed_ continue to support all older systems, and certainly the
last year's release. At some definite point in the future, we may want
to give up on the older systems, for some good reason. Having :D
available to "make" isn't it. The :D in the "Makefile" is a mistake.
