Subject Re: [all] BinaryCompatability tester

This catches source compatability, but not binary compatability. ie. the
ability to run code compiled against an old jar file without recompilation
against the new jar file.

Perhaps its possible to compile the old unit tests against the old jar, and
then run them against the new jar. That might provide some basis of
checking.
