No it doesn't.  But it indicates that there are still people who prefer 2.4 
to 2.6.

Dropping 2.4 can easily be done on relatively short notice prior to etch 
release, so no need to worry about now.

Also, I feel that the decision to ship 2.4 or not can be left up to the 
kernel team - if they have the manpower, fine, if not, dropping 2.4 
certainly is an option.
