Firefox has a system where, when you upgrade, addon's that are not
tagged as being compatible with the new version are automatically
deactivated. This prevents incompatible plugins from horking things
up. It is not without flaws, but in general it works very well.
WordPress could introduce a new plugin field, "max version" or
something similar, where a plugin can specify this as well. It could
then keep incompatible plugins from being activated on upgrades.
