Well, bugs will always only fixed in the next release, never in an  
existing release. So I think that regardless of whether FPC 2.6.x is  
supported or not, there's not really a difference. Once 3.0 is out and  
a bug is found there, it will again only be fixed at the earliest in  
the next release (and whether this next release is a 3.0.x, 3.x.0 or  
even 4.x, 3.0 will be "unsupported" in the sense that it will never  
get the fix).
