I was thinking this morning about opening a ticket for this.

For example:

You have 3 plugins that have not been tested for compatibility with
WordPress 2.8:

*   Plugin A
*   Plugin B
*   Plugin C

[ Thank you, WordPress!  Please, deactivate these plugins for me
before upgrading. ]

[ Don’t deactivate anything.  Just upgrade!  I know what I’m doing. ]

Something like this could save users (and also people who try to
support users) from a lot of trouble.
