I'd just like to say that this is the first release in recent memory
where we've managed to ship with *zero* out-of-date binaries on any
architecture in any component, due to aggressively fixing relevant
build failures and removal of a number of outdated binaries where they
were no longer supported on certain architectures or fixing their builds
wasn't realistic.  This should make it easier to support the stable
release, and is generally lots tidier.  Thanks to everyone who helped
with this!

I hope that this can be something the +1 maintenance team can keep at
zero on an ongoing basis, now that the backlog has been cleared.
