Fair point, that sentence shouldn't have been emphasized and wasn't
qualified enough. What I meant was that the *perception* of long-term
insecurity wasn't nearly as strong as it is today. Most people didn't feel
the problem until 2.0 was already out of date. If 2.5 had been an LTS
release I think the result would have been very different.
