Hi Kathey,

Thanks for these good points. I agree that Derby 10.2 needs to continue 
to interoperate with these clients and that we need to build out our 
compatibility tests. At some point, I'd like to circulate a proposal for 
what changes we plan to make to the 10.2 client and server. That 
proposal should address how we interoperate with old clients and how we 
plan to test compatibility.
