I might explain this a little bit. Client's being happy with older
versions (back to 3.6.x despite there being a few fixes) is probably a
testament to Kasper and the team back then. There's not that many CMSs
out there that can have that same claim to fame: a couple of sites have
been running for nearly 3 years now!

Thanks Michael. I understand there's definitely reasons for it.

Sounds promising. I'm thinking I'll download the archives and burn them
on DVD, then run a local application to search them.
