Replying to myself :-) I'd also add that "bad" in this context I simply
understand as "will cause problems". In other words, if you use a "known
good" version, it should work as intended. If you use a "known bad"
version, you may (or may not) have problems but some people definitely
will. So "known bad" doesn't mean unusable, but it means that there are
known bugs when using it.
