Closing all bugs?

"INVALID" wouldn't sound kind to the reporters and it would also
remove useful information for maintainers from the bug base because it
would no longer possible to distinguish between valid bugs for KDE 3
which were never fixed or triaged and bugs that were invalid in the
first place.

There is a REMIND reason for closing bugs, but it would be useful to
have something more explicit which means that the bug is being closed
for the sole reason that it applies to an older, unmaintained version
of the application.

I don't know if you can create new names for reasons, but perhaps
