is there a reason why we can't follow a similar  4+3 life cycle?   
packagers r produced for the first 4y after .0 release and only source  
updates for year 5 thru 7?

if we could advertise such on the web, there would be no question as  
to when bug reports are accepted (n+4y) and when only security ... and  
after y7, it's just not supported at all ...

that would kill packager requirements on 8.0, 8.1 (as of last month)  
and totally kill 7.4 as of nov '10
