Actually, I meant to do that too, but must have forgotten.
I agree, we should only show bindings up to the version we support
perhaps (is that 2.6 or 2.8? I can't remember).

This list is not updated by anyone except us though. The problem is that
it will definitely become out of date unless someone actively checks up
on all bindings. That is probably also why the bindings on there are
mostly out of date for a lot of languages.

I volunteer myself to do some sort of binding review as long as I can get access to update the page. (For example, the Ada bindings supports 2.10 already).
