 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.
