I didn't mean old bugs should be removed from the bug list. I just feel
it doesn't make much sense for people to file new bugs against anything
older than 4.6.1.

There is no added value to let people add bugs against older versions.
If the issue no longer exists it's just wasted time, and if it does
still exist the reporter should make the effort to verify the issue
indeed still exists in 4.6.1 or later.

Yes, but only if you keep all the other versions as valid options. If
we'd drop anything but latest stable and CVS there's not much use
leaving "all versions" around.
