Agreed, but how often is this the case vs not?

Chances are much higher that a plugin which has not been updated for a few
years will either not take advantage of improvements to Wordpress, or
function properly. Though there are a few, so maybe once again this could
just be added a search filter. "Sort by last updated" would not only allow
people to look for more recent options should they like, but would allow
developers and die-hards the option to flip the results and see what was
done back in the day.
