So - that’s been my focus, if only because Jeff mentioned the idea of wanting to get a new
user up-to-speed quickly with 2.4, and mentioned earlier the issues of running into pre-installed
headers, etc. being a source of pain and spurious bug reports.

I will *absolutely* agree with you about the configuration changes, as I’ve had folks working
with me run head on into them.
Perhaps a tool to scan an existing configuration (single file or directory structure) and
flag potential problems is in order?
