This is something that we need to address.  I've got a similar problem
with a program that I'm taking over (gxedit), where the user's config
files are not compatible with earlier versions.  When I asked on
-mentors, I was told that the only real solution is to get the upstream
version fixed so that it handles this sort of situation properly.

Now, icewm is a rather more visible package than gxedit, what with it's
connections to GNOME and all.  So, I think the time has come to raise
this issue on -devel.  What should M. Meskes and I do with our packages?
