Indeed. So
will give you all the relays that are not recommended.

I think the way I would do that is adding recommended_version into the
key on which the relays are aggregated on. This would give two rows for
0.2.9. with one being the recommended versions and one being the not
recommended versions.

Recommended versions though are not just about what is too old, but also
about what is too new. For a true "outdated" flag, this would need some
changes in Onionoo perhaps and some implementation of logic to handle
Tor version number comparisons.
