I think we talk about the same thing but don't understand each other. 
;-) OK, let's go on.

that we DID support w/ 4.1.x. This is all about what we change regarding what platforms we
provide community builds for (and thus "officially" support). If we say that all Linux platforms
that are too old to use gstreamer-1.x (eg: CentOS5, but actually it's a kernel dependency)
are no longer officially supported, GREAT. But let's just make sure that is our decision.

Yes, "as possible". But when our effort is somewhen to high to support 
the older things, then move on and leave them behind us. Mostly the 
vendor has already given up much earlier. ;-)

But as I'm not a developer I cannot estimate how difficult it is to go 
on as it is today.
