Mysql dropping 3.23 and 4.0

So Mysql are dropping unpaid support for 3.2 in August and for 4.0 in October. I think this is passing many people by and I'm not sure Mysql are shouting load enough about it. There'll be some burned fingers before the summer is out.
 
 
I read this on a Mysql blog  
 
"Keeping older versions alive for a long time is appreciated by our community and our customers alike. However, we are no longer in a position to maintain our older versions without remuneration. This means that those wishing to enjoy MySQL’s support in their usage of MySQL 3.23 and MySQL 4.0 need to plan for their future, as our support of these releases will be limited to those covered by a MySQL Network subscription, starting in 1 Aug 2006 (for MySQL 3.23) and 1 Oct 2006 (for MySQL 4.0)."
 
and
 
" This means that we are no longer offering publicly available binary updates for our 3.23 and 4.0 releases. The sources of these will still be provided. We are also evaluating whether we will continue hosting archived versions of old binaries, as well as the timeline for the support of MySQL 4.1."
 
Well I say great. They can't be expected to support old versions of mysql forever, but I'm concerned that not many people know it's coming. I'd hate to find out my database is end of life when a zero day vulnerability hits bugtrack and I can't find the patch at mysql.com.
