Don't you think that with "minimum recommended library version" warning we
could get working version to test a little bit sooner without any requests
to dev@?

CollabNet compiles clients for Windows XP, but there are still plenty of
Win2000 installations out there. What are the chances that compiled
third-party clients will be build with bugfixed Neon? GVN, for example? I
doubt that people upgrade all external libraries while building yet another
binary, because most of the time fixes in libraries are either too minor to
bother or simply doesn't affect software using them. Buildbot system can
compile binaries automatically, but libraries in most of the cases are
updated manually and people need a hint to know when it's really worth to do
this.
