My experience so far... after not having touched a project for over a
year and than the client wanting some work done, they usually expect to
have to pay to have it upgraded.  In the event they don't want to invest
in an upgrade, they end up paying a bunch to have newer software
backported.  Which is fine for me because I can barely remember what I
did 1 year ago anyhow.
