I guess it doesn't do any harm to point out that its a reasonable assumption
that the versions that GCG 8 requires are probably those that are currently
supported on service contracts (certainly true for DEC OS's listed anyway). So
if you are running an unsupported version of the OS, then you can't really
expect to get support from GCG for it either can you? 

In which vein, for how long does GCG 7.3 remain officially supported (as
opposed to GCG's historic approach of "try to fix it whatever version")?
