Granted I am new to wordpress plugins, would it be possible to create
a mechanism ( using the same concept that updates the plugins ) to
check them against a depreciated function list before updating
wordpress to a new version? Although disabling all of the plugins
before updating and then having a list of plugins that will need
attention essentially does the same thing, prechecking may be a better
experience for the user.
