Possibly an alternative, used in Ubuntu for example, is when a version
goes out of support that any bugs against that version have a comment
added saying the version is out of support, saying that if the bug is
relevant to a later version then please to post a comment, and marking
the bug as needing info, so it will expire after a time if there is no
