But then users won't see the information on our download page that they
must first read the release notes. Sure, even with that note on the page
most people don't read them. But then it's *their* fault if they find
that their working copy was upgraded and older clients won't work
anymore. If we just link to the SF page, there's no notice about that
and it would be our fault.
