I am shocked by the demands to support 4.5. Do not forget that you are not  
paying Drupal developers to do anything. You are not my boss. Nor anyone  
else's. On what base do you demand? On the amount of contribution you made  
to Drupal over time? I have yet to see any such contributor (note: I said  
contributor, not coder.) who demands this.

Therefore, the solution is very simple: if you are running 4.5 and do not  
want to update, find others in the same situation and hire an able coder  
who will provide the security patches for you. We will consider adding  
said person to the security team and some guidance will be providded, but  
please do not expect too much from our side.

Case closed.

Kind regards,

Ps. While I sometimes work for money, do not consider me. The less 4.5  
code I need to touch, the better for me. Money won't change this.
