OK, seems fine to me.  I want people using 2.9.x now anyway.  2.1.73
won't be going away though.  Also, since there are some incompatible
changes in 2.9.x (no built-in variables, etc.) we should have a clear
warning on the download page about those things.  I suspect we will
soon find out which of these changes are not yet documented in the
NEWS file.
