VG2 policy is that we only run released versions, and we don't upgrade
until 2-3 weeks after the release, to let others shake out the bugs.  If a
release can't be safely downgraded, we'll wait longer

But you can always build your own grid for testing.  You can even run a
dozen instances of Tahoe on one box.
