Comment #1 on issue 210 by ken...@google.com: Broken backwards compatibility of protobuf-java library between 2.0.x and 2.3.x

protoc and the runtime library are tightly coupled. You cannot use an older protoc with a newer runtime nor vice versa. Your suggested fix would only solve one small problem of many. Sorry, I realize this could be inconvenient, but that's how the system is designed.
