Because in the not too far future the Linux community will largely run
away from 2.4?  In fact the motivation of many developers to continue
with 2.4 is quite down already and Marcelo is going to put 2.4 into
deep freeze after 2.4.25.

As someone that does _product_ development, 2.4 is going to be used
for a long time.  It may not be interesting to people with the goal
of software modification, but when you are deploying real devices to
real customers, people finding bugs is the last thing you want to see.
