Reviewing 1.10 APIs & compatibility

One task in the 1.10 release process is reviewing API changes.

One way, that I use myself, is to take a library at a time and compare
the 1.9 and 1.10 public headers, looking for procedural errors (e.g. how
new and deprecated APIs are marked up, undocumented parameters, etc.)
and for possible semantic problems such as changing one part of the API
but not changing a related part in the corresponding way.

Another possible approach is to look for compatibility breakage by
running the 1.9 client and test suite against the 1.10 libraries, and
indeed different client/server version combinations.

Can anyone volunteer for any of this?
