Believe me, I am well aware of that attitude in software, and often have it
myself.  But .9x had its share of problems that to my knowledge will not be
fixed.  Even when running and designing shows using certain configurations,
I may start testing other stuff to replace it outside of the show to use on
my next design.  Likewise while I won't change versions in the middle of a
project without good reason, I will upgrade ofr better functionality and
stability between projects.  Just because something works doesn't mean it
can't work better. Not a matter of fixing it there, it is a matter of
realising that improvements can and will be made.
