Considering Robert's downgrade script, previous versions ought to be 
made quick
to discover. Having said that, what about exploits in older versions? A "drink
you own poision" policy? Perhaps the 'risk factor' can be indicated e.g. by
putting them apart in a subdirectory?


PS - There is a nightlies collector lurking about. Additionally, sites like
oldversion.com/Web Archive might always make older versions available. There's
no escape.
