In other words, at the moment where we're on an unsupported ESR, we're
in the ICU ("Intensive Care Unit"), with no hope of recovery. All that
remains at that point is to say goodbye to our family and friends and
die gracefully (without infecting others with critical security bugs).
The only way for TB to stay healthy is to stay on the Mozilla-supported ESR.
Sorry that my last email came across harsh. I've just seen too many
projects do belly-up because of this exact fallacy "we'll keep the older
Gecko and backport fixes".
