I think having a <0.5 subpage certainly makes sense; there's a very big difference between pre and post- there. (Going from 0.5 to darcs might just involve messing around with some imports and names for many configs, but for 0.4 to 0.5 you'd need to rewrite the danged thing.) It might even be a good idea to in this way mildly discourage spreading of old configs. (upgrade already, sheesh!)
And the rest? I dunno, perhaps a second subpage for 0.5 >= x >= 0.8, or perhaps by version.
