Some plugin authors (like me) are too lazy or forgetful to update their
plugin's max version when new versions of WP come out.  That doesn't mean
that they don't work, but they could get incorrectly flagged.  So my
question is this, is it better to inconvenience people using plugins that do
work fine or the people using plugins that won't work?
