Umm, no?  I mean, literally no?  Other than the first+last
releases of each stable branch, those files are gone.  If you can
find some old binaries on some old mirror, go for it... but the
old middle-of-release binaries that used to be on are
gone now.

I'm not planning on removing the .0 and .last stable release
binaries, so don't worry about those.  Then again, there's no harm
in grabbing a copy now just in case.
