Don't really care which version they run or what compiler they
use, as long as it's not 2.1.12 or 3.0.4 (or similar age) and it
compiles. Most people want a "stable" release, so that means
3.0.11 or so.

The general questions on the list of "foo is broken for me in
3.0.4", when foo is a small unlang syntax issue, they've not
tested in 3.0.x, and they don't provide full debug output
indicates to me that they're not good candidates for testing 3.1
or 4 in production... IMO anyway.
