When we know that a upper version doesn't work, we edit the doc to say
"Neon 0.24.5 through 3.25.3" or whatever.

My point has nothing to do with making the document static. It's
about not forcing people to upgrade software that they don't really
have to upgrade, because upgrading may cause problems with *other*
things on their system. We want to force as little churn as we can.
