Let me extend this thought. We need the compatibility tests run across 
all options that are supported and such, so that we know what breaks, a 
very generic compat test against an older client is not sufficient.

IOW, test every option documented (and possibly not documented) in the 
upgrade and compat tests across servers and clients.

As we hear more about large clusters, or client count explosion, we need 
to ensure we break nothing and can certify the same for every release.
