I don't see any incompatibility in asking people to use several versions
(actually I do that using Portable versions of LibreOffice from WinPenPack)
and reducing the number of versions in the drop list. 
If a user is able to tell that a bug was introduced between 4.0.0 and 4.0.1,
a bibisect in that range should be able to find the problematic
What would be the advantage to have the user install 4.0.0 Beta1, Beta2,
RC1, etc?
