ok... so then, "but NO SUPPORT is given OVERRIDEVERSIONCHECK usage!)"

i'm guessing that last section is what you were looking at as giving an 
implication? frankly, it took me several minutes to come up with that and i 
thought it pretty clear and to the point about the wrong compiler version... i 
also wanted to retain the part about OVERRIDEVERSIONCHECK but make it clear that 
no support would be given for its use...

i did even have "2.6.0 or 2.6.2" but decided that was not good even though it 
may be supported...
