That was a little uncalled for on both sides.  The issue here is that
people that have invested time and money expect to be able to jump
major point releases with no configuration changes.  That is an
unreasonable stance to take.  This change has been a long time coming
because the community was waiting for people to change over to the new
method.  Using | as a delimiter has been deprecated for most, if not
all, of the life of the 1.4 branch.  Blaming Digium for the things
that go wrong isn't going to help you, especially when you don't pay
attention to PLANNED changes.  This is headed toward a flame war that
I hope we can avoid.
