I wholeheartedly agree, but obviously I haven't earned the right yet
to post patches that make decisions of that impact. And I thought it
would be interesting to have an inventory of what features were
already in use. I only included 2.5 in my testing because in all the
code there was only just one use of a 2.6 feature.

How does everyone feel about adding "if version less than 2.7 then
throw an exception" to pactest main to document this decision?
