Subject Re: Thrift version compatibility

If you don’t have a set of unit tests that exercises every client/server call you have, that
is a good place to start for testing this stuff since regardless of what people’s policy
is on compatibility, bugs can occur.  I uncovered a random issue with 0.9.3 java server and
0.9.0 c++ clients concerning the binary type which luckily broke a ton of tests.
