Personally I don't object (I use Twisted 10..),
but I think it's not just a question of ancient-ness,
but more a question of cost-benefit.
- How much code exists just to allow supporting old versions,
and what's the "cost" of maintaining that code?
- Is there any gain in dropping support of old versions?
Ability to use features from newer versions?
Just my 2c :-)
