I don't know if I'd consider changing a default keybinding an 
"incompatibility" as such. IMO, unless something breaks as a result of 
an upgrade, it's not really incompatible.

The only real incompatibilities I can think of are the filedefs/color 
schemes, changes to the plugin API, and the GTK+ version bump.

We could, at release-time, just manually scan the ChangeLog (and/or 
Release Notes) and add an asterisk to each item that changes defaults or 
breaks compatibility, with a note at the bottom of the list to explain 
what the asterisk means.
