    I don't see any major problem keeping as much as 2-years worth of
    packages around.  Security issues do crop up but from the point
    of view of someone having to make the choice between spending
    5 minutes adding an older version of a package verses potentially
    a day upgrading the entire system, I'd rather the person had that
    choice to make.

    Software basically starts accumulating security and obsolesence
    issues from the day it is released so it is kinda hard to argue for
    specific break points.
