Hi, Peter.

Significant differences between versions can happen at least a few more places:
1)  multi-dimensional arrays stored in custom properties (for example, app settings)
2)  the object hierarchy
3)  name changes for stacks, objects, and custom properties
4)  id changes for objects
5)  stack hierarchies

The use-list has many messages about version control that could help you identify the worms and the people who know how to deal with them.  If and when you become interested in diffs for multi-dimensional arrays, let me know.
