The fact that Chet has backported fixes all the way back to Bash 2.05b
(which was released in July 2002) shows, in my opinion, dedication
above and beyond the call of duty.

2.05b is the final release of the Bash 2.x series.  To run anything
older than that, within the same series, is not a reasonable stance.
2.05 was released in April 2001.  That's 13 and a half years ago.
Nobody supports software that old.
