I don't think these matters whether it'll get a newer version of iOS

As I've said before, Apple only included the 3GS for iOS 6 because of Maps. The more people using Maps, the more data they are able to collect to improve upon it. With so many people still using the 3GS when iOS 6 rolled out (and I'm still sure there are still many), Apple decided it was beneficial for them to have a larger source of crowd data for maps.

How did you get that installed? Was it some developer's version? A Jailbroken release?

If it does, some "feature" will likely be disabled.

The 3GS got iOS 6 more likely because Apple was still selling it last year. The iPhone lineup last year was the 3GS, 4 and 4S.

I think it will, however, it wouldn't surprise me if there were some features that won't be available on the 4. Sort of like how Siri was done.

I could see them including it until the phones are no longer offered by wireless providers.

Definitely. If iPhone 3G was able to get iOS 6, there's no doubt in my mind that iPhone 4 will be able to support iOS 7 -- there's a still a pretty significant amount of people who are using the iPhone 4.
