It will. Some services widely-used by mathematicians, such as ArXiv, still use
teTeX2, and some universities do so. People (esp. sysadmin) don't upgrade their
TeX system as frequently as we TeXies could wish. This is a fact.

Nobody wants to maintain an old version of LuaTeX. But a lot of macro writers
want to be able do deal with them, and are asking the for a reliable way to do it.
