but this got my attention. 

I know that backwards compatibility always has been a big deal with POV-
Ray, but is breaking it and keeping all previous versions around as binary 
and/or source not an easier way to do that? Maybe even as a single 
download.

I would not mind having several versions on my system and having the IDE 
automatically switch to the right engine based on the #version directive 
in the scene.
