Does your manager still run Windows 98?
Not to be sarcastic but that is essentially what the argument boils down to.
1. 7.2 is *not* supported
2. 7.2 will not receive any backpatches
* There are data loss and security bugs that have not been back patched
3. If you post here with a question about 7.2, the first thing you will
get back is, "upgrade".
4. 8.2 is much faster (not like 10%, like 100%)
Now what problems are you going to run into?
Several datatypes in 7.2 are allowed to be '', in 8.x they are not.
Specifically number based types.
You may have to turn "on" add_missing_from_clause
