However, just because KDE 4.x is the "New Hotness" does _not_ mean that we can
blithely lockout bug reporting from older products. Doing this smacks a
little of proprietary software that puts people on the upgrade cycle since
they won't support you at all. While I'm not arguing that people shouldn't
upgrade (in fact I hope they do), I am arguing the same thing I've said
before with the arts product: THERE ARE GOING TO BE PEOPLE USING THIS
SOFTWARE FOR A WHILE YET! The last time I raised this, I got plain ignored.
Please people, stop crusading to close out bugs just because it artificially
would bring the bug count down.
