Comment (by Ipstenu):

 Your sarcasm came on a bit strong there, @rglennnall - Can you please
 scale it back a bit?

 We're not the normal users. We know how things work (like the perfectly
 valid reasons not to update code). Which is why I stress we do need to
 downgrade. Usage doesn't actually indicate all that much either. I know a
 couple well used, by a LOT of people, plugins that aren't upgraded often
 (if at all) and can be hit or miss because they stop being compatible with
 other plugins and themes.

 Basically, the tested-up-to is the only metric I can think of that
 indicates the developer is around and testing in a reasonable timeframe.

 If there's a more reliable one, I'd love to hear it.
