Since we still have all those 9.2 machines I could easily build that
rpm so that you don't have to rebuild a machine just for that rpm.

I usually do not upgrade machines just because there is a newer version
out there. However, if you would like to drop support for 9.2 we
should be able to upgrade to 9.3 without big problems.

I have no experience yet with opensuse/10.0 - I simply have not
had the time to play with that.
