 Disabling the plugin on the Support forums seems safe.
 Localised support forums will also need the plugin disabled, and Rosetta
 tools will also need updating to not activate that plugin on new support

 Noting that it's used in these themes with `function_exists()` checks:

 @Clorith FYI It's disabled on wordpress.org/support now.

 I think there's potentially other things we could do instead - Only
 showing the major versions, the latest version, and defaulting to `I don't
 know`, for example: `4.6, 4.7, 4.8, 4.9, 4.9.4, I don't know` That might
 help with the decision of what to select and hopefully make the
 information more useful to volunteers?
