I'm not sure what you are asking for then...
The things that are going to break and we can't control are:
* Locally compiled C++ applications and libraries
* Third party applications and libraries
For the first group a line in the release notes is (probably) enough --
but as "customer", I wouldn't be happy if I saw such a line.
For the second group... hmmm... "we wish you luck"? (h/j) I'm not sure
if you really want the list of applications that are going to break
here. I could start by listing software products from TGV (or any
other numeric/scientific/simulation software company). Some of these
people deliver software linked agaisnt Qt 3, but it's trued that most
of them prefer Motif for whatever reason.
