I have a module in the works that tests for inverse square light 
attenuation.

There is also the elimination of the torus spindle artifact, although I 
already had a workaround for that and haven't decided whether it's worth 
the version sniffing just to take advantage of this feature.

But in general, many of the bug fixes and numerous enhancements to v3.7 
have the /potential/ for requiring testing or version sniffing.  This is 
quite different from the upgrades to v3.6.  I do not even remember what 
the difference was between v3.6.0 and v3.6.1, and of course v3.6.2 was a 
Windows-specific change that had no bearing on renders.
