Good question. I think we don't want to support too many branches. We've 
had several people who *did* want older branches (all the way to 0.10 I 
think?) supported, however.

I myself have the perspective that we should encourage people to switch 
to newer versions of Grok, and try to maintain a stable branch only of 
the most recent stable release. Even with some of our internal changes 
to Grokkers this shouldn't currently be a very hard demand.

If there are volunteers who want to maintain older branches however and 
make releases, they're welcome to help out.
