Lightroom SDK: Like deprecation warning, let's have a backward compatibility warning.

Problem: sometimes users are the ones to hit the bugs in older versions of Lightroom (due to using newer SDK features), instead of plugin author.

How about supporting another option in config.lua like you do for deprecation warnings, except for "backward compatibility" warning, for example, in config.lua:

sdkCompatibility.action = 'log'
loggers.AgSdkCompatibility = {
logLevel = "warn",
action = "logfile",
}

so authors who do most of their Lr3/Lr4 plugin testing in Lr4 can know about calls that won't work for Lr3 users...
