This change was made to facilitate contrib testing, where the test bot was always ignoring D6 patches even if a contrib module supported D6 tests.  The test bot currently uses the version the issue is pointing to so it can figure out what version to test against.  If you want a patch tested, don't specify a version in the filename, just let the issue define that.  If you want a patch that's not tested (since it's for a different version than the issue is pointing to), use -Dx.

That ends up being a rather cryptic way to say "Do not test". I predict
this will be messed up a lot. =)
