The problem is whether we have the means to support those older versions.
I can help with XP, for instance, but not with 98. You also need to have
people who are publicly committed to helping with the port's maintenance,
as it's unfair IMO to ask anyone to worry about a platform that only
affects 0.01%. Thinking from our perspective, we get more bang for our
buck if we dedicate what resources we have to platforms that have more
people using them.
