All I'm asking is a leading paragraph something like this:
"""While the Python developers do their best to make every subsequent release backwards compatible with previous releases, in a system of this complexity, sometimes incompatibilities in odd corners of the language are unavoidable. While we expect that these will affect only a small minority of Python users, we document them here for completeness."""
When I read complete change lists, I always think "don't they have more important things to worry about", with the implication that the author of the list did a good job, and unless I spot something that I know will affect me, it gives me the warm feeling that I don't have to worry about unexpected breakages.
So I'm all for producing a as-complete-as-possible list, and let readers judge the relevance of this list themselves.
