Yes.  The animals that are doing it at all are using code more or less
like this:

if ($branch eq 'HEAD' or $branch ge 'REL9_4')

(verbatim from longfin's config script)

So maybe that's an argument for not going back before 9.4.  OTOH,
you may be giving the buildfarm owners too little credit for
willingness to update their configurations.
