I have to agree.  As someone who works software QA professionally, I
feel the pain.

On the QA team, we can only test a certain number of configurations
because of time.  Anything else?  Well, you are basically blazing your
own trail.  The same rule applies to support.

Yes, it is possible to debug issues on "unsupported" configurations,
but the process is almost always a time sink (i.e. low reward to cost
ratio).  This is why there is a little hostility toward the third party
tools.  They increase the amount of support work drastically.

vodik, keep up the good work!
