Perhaps you're not planning to update the package, but I know that *I*
as a developer want to still use FC12.

With our 12-month rule this means we should still support version 3.

Sure...  2.2.x only supported version 3, not 4 or 5.  So there was no
need for the distro to push out newer versions.  But just because we
still support an older version (in order to support slightly-older
distributions) does not imply that vendors shouldn't update the
dependencies in newer releases.

If I was talking about FC10 I'd completely agree with you, but FC12 was
only released 7ish months ago, so I think we should continue to support
it (and its dependency set).
