I think you misunderstood what I meant.

The only argument I see against leaving "60" out of the allowed list
in the Windows build is that we haven't tested it. Once that changes
we should allow "60", when we do so we should also add a warning about
the licensing issues. I say this because Windows has no
auto-detection of dependencies and as such the version of BDB is
always deliberately chosen by the user.
