Here's my perspective on that issue: Running old versions of WordPress
is a very very very bad idea, mainly because of security holes that are
patched in later versions.
So, two simple ways to contribute to better security is to (1) not let
your plugin run on too old of a version of WP (for example, one major
point release back is pushing the limit of sensibility), and (2) make
sure your own code doesn't create holes that intruders can waltz through.
