Oh we weren't being serious - if a customer finds a bug/regression in
a supported version, then we need to fix it.  No bribes are required.
This is the benefit of being a customer - you don't even need to worry
about this because regardless of what happens to clustering
"upstream", we're paid to maintain the "old" version for 7 years after
it's release.

Besides, beer and pizza are more effective for bribes anyway :-)
