Indeed, we did:

The reasonable choices for bootstrapping an environment are either:

a) The last LTS
b) The Ubuntu running the juju command

After that, every other command should default to the series that
originally bootstrapped the environment.

Cool, so we're in agreement.

I didn't propose that. No matter what we do, this command must
continue to work out of the box:

    juju deploy mongodb
