Hey Archaeopteryx,

thanks for reaching out with compat warnings.

However, I don't think that most ext authors watch here. Is the source 
code to all extensions on AMO on an lxr somewhere (public or not)? You 
could search there. This is the most efficient and effective way to make 
such decisions and alerts.

Thanks for your efforts to keep extensions running!
