I don't think it is a good idea that activities are developed against
a specific version of Sugar. For example, right now in Uruguay we have

Legacy support can be painful but I think it is necessary. My wish is
that as a rule all activities should be compatible with previous
versions of Sugar and the Sugar API should try to remain as stable as
