    To clarify, we *have* broken compatibility in the way most current users are 
    likely to encounter, people with old *runtimes* (including the current stable 
    snapshot) - starting tonight, if those people compile with upcc -nightly, 
    they'll see this error:
    upcc: error during UPC-to-C translation (sgiupc stage):
    ### Compiler Error during Front End Driver phase:
    ### UPC runtime too old (provides interface 2.2: translator needs 2.3).
    Please download a newer version of the UPC runtime from
    sgiupc INTERNAL 
    returned non-zero status 1
    This message is currently a lie (because the runtime snapshots available for 
    download on the webpage are all also too old), but that's OK because we'll 
    soon be publishing the new release. In the meantime (ie until the release this 
    weekend), current users should use upcc -stable and not -nightly.
