Hear, hear! :)

I have already been burned on Guile-1.4 (it was not painful and it did
not include too much swearing, though). I think another good idea is
to also add TRANSITION (or similarily named file) that would be a
quick-reference with 1 line for each deprecated feature, and either
the replacement in that same line or a documentation pointer if it
involves more than can fit the line.

How to eff the ineffable?
