You're going to get a big list of reasons why settings can't be
changed while the program is running, and suggestions to just run
multiple copies of the program instead.
There are a few of us that have already been down this path...

being the development version. I just wanted to make sure that the
reversion detection code was actually working in light of the recent
discussion of multiple configurations and XML files and preserved
settings. I attempt to do backward compatibility by
migrating/converting/upgraded XML settings in the new versions. But
sometimes that conversion is one-way and if you take an upgraded XML and
load it into a back-level version, those settings may revert to default
values. Hence the warning. Nothing particularly "bad" will happen, but
your settings may not be as you expect.
