Is there a list of backwards compatibility issues and changes in default behavior
between 2.3.x and the *current* 2.4.x?  How difficult is it to remove these?

I am leaning towards this proposal (that is, get 2.4.x ready to release, rather
than 'converting' it to 3.x) if the backwards compatibility issues can be resolved.
